48-Year-Old Asian Man Arrested On Suspicion Of Sexual Assault At Surrey Massage Therapy Clinic

06 Feb, 2020
  • 48-Year-Old Asian Man Arrested On Suspicion Of Sexual Assault At Surrey Massage Therapy Clinic

Surrey RCMP is advising the public of an on-going investigation of two alleged sexual assaults at a therapeutic clinic in Surrey.


The alleged sexual assaults are both reported to have taken place in January, 2020, at the Healthland Clinic, located at 7128 King George Boulevard in Surrey. In both incidents the victims were allegedly sexually assaulted by an employee while receiving massage treatment.


A suspect, who is described as a 48-year-old Asian man was arrested, and has been released pending further investigation. As charges have not been laid the identity of the suspect is not being made public at this time.

 

However, investigators believe there may be additional victims who have not yet come forward, and so to further the police investigation, the RCMP has disclosed the business location.


Healthland Clinic has two locations in the Lower Mainland, one in Surrey, and the other in New Westminster. It is believed that the suspect in these assaults has performed massages at both locations.


"Reporting a sexual assault to police can be a very difficult thing to do, as it is a very personal incident," says Constable Richard Wright.

 

"Our investigators take allegations of sexual assault very seriously and work closely with our Victim Services to ensure emotional support is provided throughout the investigation and court processes."


Anyone with more information, or who may have been a victim of a similar offence at these clinics is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or New Westminster Police at 604-525-5411.
