The woman eventually reported the matter to police, claiming she’d been touched inappropriately.  

Further investigations led police to two more women, both with similar allegations.

A second woman claimed that six weeks earlier on January 18 Dr Lin unnecessarily touched her right breast.

The following day, Dr Lin is accused of pinching both of a woman’s nipples between three of his fingers. 

Dr Lin voluntarily presented at Waverley Police Station on May 17.
