Last week, Garden Grove Police arrested Danta Arnaud for sexual assault. Apparently, Arnaud, dressed in a white lab coat, entered the rooms of female patients at Garden Grove Hospital under the guise of drawing blood as a lab technician. During the visit, he engaged the patient in conversation and allegedly conducted physical examinations. Seven victims have identified him so far.

Arnuad was arrested at his residence without incident, was transported to the Garden Grove Police Department for questioning and then booked into the Orange County Jail, with bail set at $1,000,000.

This is why we hate going into the hospital. Even the lab technicians are creepy.
