A massage therapist at the Red Door Lifestyle Spa in the Hyatt Regency hotel was arrested Monday and charged with sexual battery and exposing his genitals to a female client.
On Friday, a 49-year-old woman from Virginia was laying face down, getting a massage from Dayron Escobar, 24, of Pembroke Pines, when the Broward Sheriff's Office says he touched her inappropriately.
According to a Sheriff's Office complaint affidavit, the client noticed that Escobar's pants zipper was down.
She reported the incident to management and Escobar left the spa, where he had worked for four years without any prior complaints, BSO said.
