NJ Doctor Accused of Poking Girl with Screwdriver

New Jersey regulators have suspended the license of a northern New Jersey physician accused of poking a 13-year-old child more than 100 times with a screwdriver, causing bruises and small cuts.

The state Board of Medical Examiners announced the action Monday against Dr. Sylvia Lee of Emerson, an allergist who practiced in Old Bridge.

Lee was arrested at her home on July 3 on charges of aggravated assault and child endangerment. The alleged victim was identified only as a 13-year-old female. The complaint does not specify the child's relationship with Lee.

Police say Lee jabbed the child with the flathead screwdriver in a dispute over household chores.

An after-hours message was left Monday for Lee's attorney, Jay J. Friedrich of Ridgewood.
