Twin Cities massage therapist charged with groping a customer

This isn't the first time.

A Twin Cities massage therapist has been charged with sexually assaulting a female customer.

According to the complaint, Marion Guy Anderson, 37, had been working at Elements Massage in Roseville. The incident is said to have happened in November.

Authorities say a 26-year-old woman went in for a massage and Anderson greeted her with a hug – which the woman thought was odd.

Then throughout the massage, Anderson is said to have made comments about her race and asked about her boyfriend. The complaint says he also asked to woman to take off her bra and underwear because they'd "get in the way," and he proceeded to touch near her genitals.

The complaint says the woman got up and left after she felt the man's whole body – including his genitals – pressed against her back.

Authorities say the woman told the manager about what happened, then went to the Roseville police with her boyfriend.

Anderson has since been fired from his job. Police arrested him Thursday, and he's been charged with 4th degree criminal sex conduct.

Not the first time

This isn't the first time Anderson has been accused of assaulting a customer.

A background check found that Anderson was accused of touching a different female client inappropriately in 2013. Charges were never pressed in that case, though.
