Calgary police have charged a massage therapist with sexual assault against three of his clients.

The investigation started last November when a man reported he was sexually assaulted during a massage treatment in April 2018. He alleged it happened at Movement Sports Clinic, in the 100 block of Ninth Avenue S.W., police said in a release Wednesday.

Two more men later came forward to allege they were assaulted in August and September of last year.

The Calgary police sex crimes unit arrested Dennis Quebral Baltazar, 44, of Calgary, and charged him with three counts of sexual assault.

He is set to appear in court on March 21.

Police said the clinic fully co-operated in their investigation.

Police believe Baltazar previously worked at several other massage clinics in Calgary. Anyone who feels they have been a victim of sexual assault is encouraged to report it to police.
