Nurse arrested on additional charges

Alex Woolner faces more counts of abusing patients after two more victims identified.

WOOLNERAlex Woolner has been re-arrested after Beaverton detectives learned about two more alleged victims of the North Plains man while he worked as a registered nurse at Kaiser Permanente's Beaverton clinic.

Woolner, now 38, was indicted on Friday on four additional charges: one count of third-degree sexual abuse, one count of computer crimes and two counts of invasion of privacy.

He was arrested Monday and booked into the Washington County Jail.

Woolner originally was arrested in April on similar accusations that he subjected female patients to unnecessary physical exams that were sexual in nature while working at the clinic in January and February.

He pleaded not guilty to the original charges and had been out of jail pending trial until his second arrest. He resigned from Kaiser.

Separately, a couple of victims have sued Kaiser related to the incidents involving Woolner.

Beaverton Police spokesman Mike Rowe said investigators are continuing to ask that women who were victimized by Woolner while he worked as a nurse at Kaiser to come forward.
