FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (FOX 5 DC) - A man has been indicted for multiple rapes, abduction and unlawful videotaping of multiple victims, including an individual he met through online dating apps, according to Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano.
The most shocking part – is FOX 5 uncovered Steiner was a family medicine doctor at Fort Belvoir Community Hospital. In a statement, they said he is no longer employed, but would not say if he was fired or quit.
According to his LinkedIn, he graduated from Georgetown university’s school of medicine in 1989 and has more than 20 years of experience in the field.
Now, he is accused of raping multiple women.
Detectives were contacted in July 2020 by a woman who reported she was assaulted at a home in the 8300 block of Cushing Court in Springfield by a man she met online.
Approximately a month later in August 2020, Steiner is accused of meeting a woman on a dating app, inviting her over to his home, and videotaping her while she was nude and had no idea the cameras were rolling.
Detectives identified Drew John Steiner, of Springfield, as the offender in both cases.
Evidence was presented to a grand jury Monday who indicted Steiner on one count of rape, one count of forcible sodomy, one count of unlawful filming, two counts of abduction with intent to defile and two counts of object sexual penetration.
"What is alleged in the indictment is horrific. I can’t even imagine being a victim of what’s alleged so my heart does go out to these victims," said Descano.
Steiner has been held without bond at the adult detention center since being charged with the assault and abduction of a family member that occurred on Sept. 27, 2020. Court documents reveal a neighbor called 911 after the victim escaped from the basement where they were being constrained with duct tape.
Steiner will appear in court on Wednesday, May 5th.
Descano released the following statement on the indictment:
"Roughly between the dates of July 7, 2020 and August 18, 2020 Drew John Steiner is alleged to have raped multiple individuals, at least one who he met through a dating application, and knowingly and intentionally filmed without the consent of the victim. Upon reviewing the investigation into this matter, I determined that charges of rape, abduction, and unlawful videotaping were merited and a grand jury agreed. Today I am therefore announcing the indictment of Drew John Steiner on these charges. I am also encouraging individuals who may have information that would aid in this investigation to contact the Major Crimes Bureau of the Fairfax County Police at 703-246-7800, option 3. My top priority is to keep our community safe. I will therefore always act to hold those accountable who prey upon members of this community and I am hopeful that this indictment will serve as a first step toward justice in this case."
