SAN LEANDRO
Oakland man accused of groping woman during massage
SAN LEANDRO — An uncertified masseur is facing misdemeanor charges after he allegedly groped a client at a San Leandro massage parlor last weekend, according to police.
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.
The victim returned home and called 911 to report the alleged crimes, according to police. Song was arrested a short time later at the business and booked into the city jail.
On Tuesday, police presented the case to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, which in turn filed misdemeanor sexual battery charges against Song, police said.
Police also shut down SK Foot Massage pending a review of its business license. As of Friday, it was closed indefinitely, leaving San Leandro with 17 licensed massage parlors.
“The San Leandro Police Department does not tolerate this type of activity within our massage establishment,” said Lt. Isaac Benabou in a news release. “We take steps to ensure that massage businesses within San Leandro are operating under the law and require that all massage therapists are certified through the California Massage Therapy Council.”
