Massage therapist accused of sexual assault

MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

A disturbing number of sexual assaults are being reported at places where people go to relax.

At least three customers said they were assaulted recently inside local spas.

On Thursday, Yuntao Jiang faced a preliminary hearing in Rutherford County General Sessions Court on charges he sexually assaulted a woman during a massage.

"We went totally for a massage," the 21-year-old victim testified. "He told me to remove what I didn't take off, which was my underwear."

The December trip to Aqua Foot Care and Massage at Stones River Mall was her first time she ever had a full-body table massage.

"He put a small towel on my legs and proceeded to massage me for a while," the victim testified.

The woman is not being identified because she is a possible sexual assault victim.

"He flipped me over and started to kiss me and massaged my breast," she testified.

The victim testified that there was no weapon involved or force used.

Jiang's attorney questioned the woman that if the alleged sexual acts happened why she didn't try to stop it or leave.

"I was frozen. I didn't know how to react," the victim testified.

The Tennessee Department of Health, which regulates massage parlors, suspended Jiang's license. The business is still open, but Jiang can no longer perform massages at this time.

A 17-year-old victim also filed charges against Jiang claiming he removed her underwear without her permission and looked at her private areas.

The teen did not testify at today's hearing, but she gave a full report to Murfreesboro police and testified in January during Jiang's license suspension hearing.

The judge found enough probable cause to send the case to the grand jury to review.
