A Vancouver masseur has been charged after a woman told police she was sexually assaulted last week.
Vancouver police said Wednesday that a woman in her 30s alleged she had hired Alexander Varfolomeev off an app called ‘Soothe.’
She said Varfolomeev then came to her home to give her a massage but instead sexually assaulted her.
Varfolomeev is not registered with the College of Massage Therapists of B.C. Police believe he is self-employed.
Varfolomeev was released on bail on the condition he not provide massage or physical therapy.
