Dr. Zhi Alan Cheng Taken into Custody on Suspected Charges of Administering Drugs and Sexual Assault Against Women

Dr. Zhi Alan Cheng, a gastroenterologist in Queens, has been apprehended on charges of drugging a woman within his residence and sexually assaulting her. Prosecutors contend that he also surreptitiously recorded the sexual assault. Another woman, who had been a former patient of Dr. Zhi Alan Cheng, has come forward, alleging that she too was drugged and subjected to sexual assault.

The Queens district attorney’s office formally charged Dr. Zhi Alan Cheng with first-degree rape in December 2022. It is claimed that the doctor employed a K-N95 mask filled with cotton balls and an unidentified liquid to incapacitate a woman inside his apartment. Upon regaining consciousness, she reportedly discovered a video recording of her own sexual assault. Currently, Dr. Zhi Alan Cheng is being held in custody without bail on Rikers Island.

Notably, there is no indication that the hospital where he practiced has taken any disciplinary action against him at this time. Legal representatives for the defendant have asserted his innocence in response to the criminal rape charges.
