What’s the Problem?
June 15, 2018 – Billy Hayes, Captain of the Los Angeles Police Department, said that detectives from the sex-crimes division have made contact with Tyndall and seized evidence during the raid, but did not provide additional details.
Police have contacted about 135 women about Tyndall, and more than 400 others have called a university hotline since news of an investigation surfaced indicating that he was allowed to remain employed at the university, despite numerous complaints going back to the early 2000s.
Details of what was found during the raids have been kept secret to protect the integrity of the investigation, according to the LA Times. Tyndall was handcuffed during the search at his apartment as part of standard police protocol, but he was not taken into custody and has not been charged with any crimes.
Tyndall, who resigned last year in anticipation of the scandal, has denied wrongdoing and said he never mistreated patients. He has not responded publicly to the latest developments.
USC has admitted that it received complaints about Tyndall as far back as the early 2000s, and that the head of the medical clinic, who died in 2016, “handled patient complaints independently.” The university said it was unclear why Tyndall was allowed to remain at his post for so many years.
It was only after a frustrated nurse reported Tyndall to the campus rape crisis center in 2016 that the gynecologist was removed from his position.
