A North Virginia military doctor allegedly abducted and assaulted his wife after raping two women he first connected with on a sugar daddy website last year, authorities said.
A Fairfax County grand jury indicted Dr. Drew John Steiner on counts of rape, abduction and unlawful filming, prosecutors announced April 20, The Washington Post reported.
“The crimes that are alleged in this indictment are absolutely horrible, vile crimes," Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano said, according to D.C.’s WRC-TV.
On July 7, 2020, Steiner, 58, made a dinner date with the first alleged victim he met on Seeking.com and lured her to his house by saying he first had to change clothes and asking her if she wanted a tour, the search warrant states.
Once inside, he allegedly started touching the victim and she became uncomfortable and tried to run for the door but he knocked her down and sexually assaulted her, according to the warrant.
During the assault, Steiner told the victim he had killed five women, authorities alleged.
The second accuser told investigators she was at Steiner’s home on Aug. 18 and noticed a laptop she believed may have been recording. The woman moved away from the computer and her encounter with Steiner began consensually. It then turned into rape, the search warrant states.
He allegedly threatened to kill her and asked if she knew the number of bodies in the Potomac River and Anacostia River, according to the warrant.
At the time of the indictment, Steiner was already being held without bond at the Fairfax County jail for an alleged September incident involving his wife.
In that case, according to court documents, Steiner allegedly used duct tape to bind up his wife in the basement of their home and assaulted her.
The couple’s neighbor, Carmella Dillman, told WRC-TV that the night of the alleged attack, the doctor’s wife began knocking on her door after escaping.
“She kept whispering through the door that her husband was trying to kill her, so I called the police,” she said. “I am shocked to find out everything that has happened since.”
The Fairfax County prosecutor said there could be more victims.
