Ninth woman files lawsuit alleging Delray doctor inappropriately touched her

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - 
A ninth woman has come forward saying a Delray Beach doctor inappropriately touched her.

The woman filed a civil lawsuit Wednesday.

The suit claims Dr. Manuel Abreu fondled the woman's breasts over her clothes in a sexual manner and grinded his erect penis against her.

The suit says this all happened during a routine check at the Delray Beach clinic where Abreu was working in 2013.

The suit says Abreu's employer had received prior complaints about Abreu's behavior but didn't do anything to protect patients.

Abreu was arrested and faces criminal charges based on similar claims by two other women.

He is on house arrest.
