A Northeast Philadelphia chiropractor has been ordered to stand trial on felony charges after he allegedly penetrated a 69-year-old patient with his fingers while giving her a massage, the District Attorney says.

Chiropractor Christopher Walcott, 43, was arrested in Septmeber on charges of aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault and simple assault.

The female patient told authorities that Walcott digitally penetrated her during a massage. No one else was in Walcott’s office at the time of the massage, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

In the preliminary hearing the woman testified that when she protested to Walcott’s alleged “massage,” the chiropractor told her he’d done the same thing to three other patients who asked him to do it, reports the Daily News.

"He said, 'What can I do to make this up to you? Do you want free massages?' " the woman testified, according to the Daily News.

"I said, 'I'm out of here,' " said the woman.
