When cops investigated, they say, they discovered from the California medical board that two other women had made "similar complaints" about Lluncor:
The woman who complained to Bell police said she went to Lluncor's office at 4276 Florence Ave. to be checked out for stomach pain and was assaulted during a medical exam, the department says.
Detectives who looked into it called the doc's actions an "extreme departure" from standard practice and ultimately arrested Lluncor on suspicion of penetration with a foreign object at his office Oct. 23, Bell police said.
The doctor is now out on $100,000 bail, they said.
Cops in Bell are now asking for any other possible victims to step forward and contact investigators: (323) 585-1245, ext. 253.
His arraignment was scheduled in November. If convicted, he could face eight years.
