KUSA — A massage therapist in Fort Collins has been arrested and faces charges after two of his clients came forward to allege he inappropriately touched them during a session.
Mark Struckmeyer, 33, was employed for a little over a month between September and October of this year at Spavia Day Spa at 215 E. Foothills Parkway before he was fired in connection to these sexual misconduct allegations.
In October, two women told police that they got massages from the suspect in September and October. They both reported that Struckmeyer "exposed and touched their intimate parts," according to a press release from Fort Collins Police.
The two women, police say, did not know one another.
Struckmeyer was arrested on November 30 and booked into the Larimer County Jail on four counts of unlawful sexual contact, a class 4 felony. He also ran an independent massage therapy business out of his home.
Police remind people that "professional massage should never involve genital contact," and urge anyone who may have been victimized by Struckmeyer to contact FCPS Detective Annie Hill at 970-221-6340.
Another man in Loveland was accused of running a massage parlor where he would perform illegal sexual acts earlier this fall.
Mark Thomas Brinkman, 54, was arrested in October after a four-month investigation into attempted sex crimes against children and prostitution at his business, Mark’s Leisure Massage.
