Police are asking for the public to come forward if they’ve had dealings with a man who allegedly represented himself as a licensed medical doctor.
Police say the suspect was arrested after they received a fraud complaint from a local furniture business. On February 19th, the business told police that they had delivered around $15,000 worth of furniture to an east end residence but later learned that the payment was allegedly fraudulent.
Police seized the furniture and arrested 32-year-old Darko Jovanovich.
During the course of the investigation, police say they learned that the same accused person had been allegedly representing himself to people in the city as a licensed medical doctor with affiliations and practicing privileges with hospitals in The United States.
According to Windsor Police, Jovanovich allegedly attempted to fraudulently obtain money in excess of $50,000 from a local family by offering a surgical procedure that could cure a disorder that their young child had since birth.
Jovanovich has been charged with fraud over $5000, two counts of theft under $5000, two counts of fraud under $5000, attempted fraud over $5000, assault, uttering a fraudulent document and forging a trademark.
Police believe that Jovanovich has spoken with others in the community about offering medical assistance.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Windsor Police Financial Crimes Unit at 519-255-6700 ext. 4330 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477 (TIPS).
