A DOCTOR accused of “grinding” his crotch against two female hospital colleagues told a tribunal they mistook a Nokia in his pocket for an erection.
A&E locum Mohammed Yasin, 31, said: “The only explanation I’ve got is my phone and key fob. I don’t even find these girls attractive.”

He admitted hugging the student nurse, 21, and the health care assistant during a night shift, saying he he wanted to “fit in” at New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton, West Midlands.
But the care assistant insisted: “I know the difference between an erection and a mobile phone.”
She was taking an elderly patient to the loo when the doctor put his arms around her.
She told the Manchester disciplinary tribunal: “I could feel him pushing on my leg as he was grinding up and down.”
The nurse said the doctor approached her from behind.
She recalled: “He had an erection. It was visible. I don’t think it was a phone.”
Yasin, of Birmingham, denies sexual misconduct.
The hearing continues.
