A former Vineyard physician was arraigned last week on two counts of indecent assault and battery after allegedly assaulting two women at a Camp Jabberwocky fundraiser in Edgartown.

Peter J. Laursen, 71, of Vineyard Haven, was arraigned August 4 in Edgartown district court on one count of assault and battery on a person 14 or older and one count of assault and battery on a person 60 years or older. According to police, the incidents took place on July 27 during a Jabberwocky fundraiser at the Field Club in Edgartown on July 27.

According to a police report and a press release from Edgartown police, a 16-year-old camp counselor and a 67-year-old woman allegedly reported to camp director Liza Gallagher that they had been inappropriately touched by a male attending the event. Ms. Gallagher reported the incident to police and said that she had been approached by a number of staff members who said they were uncomfortable with the behavior of one of the attendees, who was identified as Mr. Laursen.

Bail was set at $250 surety in each case and pretrial hearings were scheduled for Oct. 6. Mr. Laursen was ordered to stay away from Camp Jabberwocky and the Camp Jabberwocky area at State Beach.

Mr. Laursen is a former longtime family physician at the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital. According to the state Board of Registration in Medicine, he resigned his license in May of this year. According to the board’s website, a physician who is under investigation or named in a board complaint can choose to submit a resignation and terminate the investigation.
