CALGARY (660 NEWS) – A massage therapist in Calgary has been charged in relation to several alleged sexual assault cases.

Calgary police say the alleged assaults happened between April and Sept 2018.

On Nov. 7, 2018, a man reported that he had been sexually assaulted during a massage last April.

The assault was alleged to have occurred during a massage treatment at the Movement Sports Clinic in the 100 block of 9 Avenue S.W.

During the investigation, two additional victims came forward to report similar experiences, which happened in Aug and Sept 2018.

All three victims are adult men and had attended the same clinic.

Dennis Quebral Baltazar, 44, of Calgary, has been charged with three counts of sexual assault and will appear in court on March 21.

The Movement Sports Clinic has fully cooperated throughout the investigation and police believe the offender had previously worked at other massage clinics in Calgary.

The investigation is ongoing, and CPS encourage anyone who feels they’ve been a victim of sexual assault to report it to police at 403-266-1234, or 911 if they are in immediate danger.
