The Record
A New York psychiatrist has been charged with sexual assault, accused of masturbating in front of an underage female in Dumont in May, authorities said.

Authorities arrested Ashraf M. Amin, 42, of East Elmhurst, N.Y., on Thursday after learning he had “engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct in the presence of an underage female,” according to prosecutors.

The girl, whose age was not released, disclosed the incident in October, prosecutors said.

Amin is charged with one count each of sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

State Superior Court Judge Harry G. Carroll set Amin’s bail at $100,000 with no 10 percent option and ordered him to have no contact with the victim and surrender his passport, prosecutors said. He was remanded to the Bergen County Jail.
