Kentucky Massage Therapist Charged For Sexual Assault
The allegations against Wankun Chen are truly shocking. According to police, the massage therapist assaulted two women during the course of four months. In the first incident, on December 30, 2018, police believe Chen forced one of his customers to touch his genitals. The victim told police that he also grabbed her wrist while she was holding a towel over her nude body, causing the towel to drop and exposing her body to him.
The second incident, reported later, is just as damning. The second victim told authorities that Chen pulled down her underwear and stuck his finger in her vagina during a massage session in March 2019. The victim then told Chen to stop and started to gather her clothes. She says that Chen opened his wallet at this point to display a wad of cash, which the victim believes to have been an attempt to bribe her to not go to the police.
