2 men accused of unlicensed surgery on women
NEW YORK -- New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has accused two men without doctor's licenses of doing cosmetic surgery last year that disfigured three women.
A criminal complaint says Carlos Arango and William Ordonez recruited women from a spa in Queens and did liposuction and fat transfers without general anesthesia, while Dr. Marlon Castillo periodically entered the procedure room.
Arango and Ordonez are accused of surgery on two patients in Connecticut and one in Manhattan, though neither is a licensed physician, physician assistant or nurse in either states.
Patients reported pain and some permanent disfigurement.
Castillo and Arango have pleaded not guilty to charges including fraud and assault and were jailed with bail at $100,000. Authorities say Wednesday they are still looking for Ordonez.
All are natives of Colombia.
