Police: Reston Doctor Charged with Assaulting Patient; Other Victims Possible

A doctor based in Reston is facing charges after an investigation by the Fairfax County Police Department determined he had inappropriate contact with an adult male patient during two separate visits.

Police believe there may be other victims.

Dr. Ticoni Barte, 63, of Herndon, practiced at Community Health Care Network in the 1100 block of Washington Plaza West in Reston. The practice is part of a private partnership with the Fairfax County Health Department.

Police became aware of the issue in February. Barte is charged with two counts of assault, which police believe occurred in October and January.

His license has been suspended. Barter turned himself in on Saturday and has been released on a $10,000 bond, police said.

Anyone with additional information is urged to contact the major crimes bureau at  703-246-7830.
