EDMONTON -- A west Edmonton massage therapist has been charged with sexual assault after clients reported being inappropriately touched by him.
A 22-year-old woman reported the registered therapist after a June 25 session during which she says he massaged her breasts without consent. She had gone to the clinic over back and neck pain.
Nearly a month later, on July 23, a 30-year-old woman says the therapist also gave her a chest massage without consent, and then groped her breasts. She also told police he had made her feel uncomfortable when he massaged close to her groin without consent.
A third woman also filed a report to police.
Police have charged 28-year-old Jose Martinez with three counts of sexual assault.
His registered massage therapist licence has been suspended by the Certified Registered Massage Therapist Association.
