Valley doctor indicted after allegedly having sex with child

Posted: Updated:
ASHLAND, Ohio -

A Valley doctor has been indicted on a first-degree felony rape charge after officials say an investigation found evidence that he went to the Ashland area to allegedly have sex with a 12-year-old.

The Ashland County Grand Jury handed up the indictment to Dr. Albert Aiad-Toss, 51, who worked as an emergency room doctor at St. Elizabeth in Boardman.

According to a release from the Ashland County Prosecutor's Office, Aiad-Toss is accused of going to the Ashland area to have sex with the 12-year-old he allegedly met via a network of young teens.

“For the last several weeks, we’ve been uncovering evidence that indicates this doctor traveled to a hotel in Ashland County to engage in sex with a 12-year-old girl local to the Ashland area,” Ashland County Prosecuting Attorney Chris Tunnell said after the grand jury met. “We have significant evidence that shows the arrangements being made, and we have witnesses who will testify about what happened.”

Aiad-Toss was first taken into custody last Friday, in South Florida, by federal law enforcement agents who were serving an Ashland County state court arrest warrant for this alleged crime. 

He is currently being held in custody in Florida and is in the process of being extradited to Ashland County to face this charge.

The prosecutor's office says the overall investigation is complex and still underway, and other potential charges will be reviewed.

Anyone with information about Aiad-Toss that could help the investigation should contact the prosecutor’s office at (419) 289-8857.

Mercy Health spokesperson Jonathan Fauvie confirmed to 21 News that Aiad-Toss is no longer on the schedule since the allegations came to light. 

Fauvie said Aiad-Toss is not a Mercy Health employee, but rather is employed by Alteon Health, a company that contracts with local hospitals.
