A local masseuse claiming to be a personal trainer has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault, according to police.
Deontae Williams, 30, was arrested Sunday by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), and is reportedly being held on $200,000 bail. The LAPD’s Topanga Division Sexual Assault Unit issued a news release earlier this week indicating that Williams worked as a masseuse and security guard, traveling to several states while California was under COVID-19 lockdown orders last year. Due to Williams’ travels, police believe there may be additional sexual assault victims throughout the area who have yet to come forward.
The LAPD’s release also noted that Williams is known to patronize a number of local gyms, parks, beaches, and malls in and around Los Angeles County. According to a report provided by police, the suspected sexual predator allegedly approaches lone women, hands them business cards which portray him as a personal trainer, then engages in “inappropriate sexual conduct.” Police did not elaborate further on the extent of said inappropriate sexual conduct.
The LAPD’s Topanga Division Sexual Assault Unit is seeking additional victims after arresting Williams. He is described by the LAPD as a 30-year-old, 6-foot-2 Black man with black hair and brown eyes.
Police are urging anyone who may be a victim or has additional information regarding Deontae Williams to contact LAPD Topanga Division Detectives at 818-756-4820 (or 877-LAPD-24-7 during non-business hours or on weekends).
