Police said the incident occurred at SK Foot Massage, a licensed business on the 200 block of Estudillo Avenue, on May 12, when a woman went there for 30-minute body and foot massages. The owner, a certified masseuse, gave the woman the body massage and then turned her over to her brother — Baokai Song, 61, of Oakland — for the foot massage.

During the foot massage, Song began slowly touching other parts of the woman’s body, according to police. As she became uncomfortable, he became more aggressive and allegedly groped her private areas.
Song also tried to lead the woman back to the massage table when she stood up to leave, police said.
