Jun 19, 2024

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies have announced the arrest of a local certified masseuse after receiving a report of inappropriate sexual touching.

The suspect – Charles Russell – is a certified masseuse at the Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa in Rancho Cucamonga. Russell was arrested after a customer of the spa reported being sexually touched by him during a massage. The sexual assault allegation against the massage therapist was brought to the attention of law enforcement in May.

Detectives substantiated the allegations against Russell and obtained an arrest warrant,” a press release from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department stated. Those allegations against Russell include sexual battery and false imprisonment.

Charles Russell, 56, was taken into custody on June 12 and booked at the West Valley Detention Center.

Detectives indicated that through information collected via an ongoing investigation, they believe there may be additional victims who were sexually abused by massage therapist Charles Russell.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department officials released Russell’s photograph and are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying additional victims.

If you are a victim of Charles Russell or have information that could help detectives in their ongoing investigation, please contact Deputy M. Gonzales of the Rancho Cucamonga Station at (909) 477-2800.

Massage Therapist Sexual Assaults

Sexual assaults at massage parlors and spas are a common occurrence. In fact, a recent report from The Daily Beast confirmed that one of the largest massage parlors in the nation had received a staggering number of reports of sexual assault.

Over 180 people reported sexual battery or sexual assault occurring at a Massage Envy location. With over 1,200 Massage Envy affiliates throughout the U.S., that number could actually be much higher.

The Daily Beast reported that, “… there are more cases where women report abuse by massage therapists to police but no arrest is made, and that Massage Envy spas sometimes offer a settlement before a suit is filed, leaving no public record.
