A Ross dentist is accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old woman at his home, police said Wednesday.

Ross police arrested Bruce Lanke, 56, after the woman reported that Lanke attacked her Saturday. Ross police Detective Brian Kohlhepp said the woman is not a patient of Lanke's.

Lanke admitted to police that he assaulted the woman while she was asleep, according to a criminal complaint. His lawyer, Kevin Abramovitz, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Lanke is charged with one count of involuntary sexual deviate intercourse, two counts of aggravated indecent assault and two counts of indecent assault, according to court documents.

Lanke was released from Allegheny County Jail on $15,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is set for June 11.
