NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. — A licensed pharmacist in Niagara Falls, New York, is facing charges after police say he compelled a woman to remove her clothes before he would fill her prescription, according to WKBW.
Niagara Falls police and Drug Enforcement Administration agents arrested 81-year-old Robert Kenzia for coercion on Tuesday morning.
Police say Kenzia, a licensed pharmacist, threatened to tell other pharmacies not to fill her prescriptions if she did not comply with his demands.
The DEA is conducting a full audit of the pharmacy to see if other illegal activity has occurred at the location.
Longtime friends of Kenzia are in disbelief.
“When I saw it, I laughed. It’s not him,” said Diane Curtis, a friend of Kenzia. “I’m shocked. Truly shocked.”
Police say it is suspected there might be other victims who have yet to come forward.AlertMe
