(Updated at 4:50 p.m.) Fairfax County police have arrested an unlicensed masseuse who allegedly sexually assaulted a woman at an Annandale clinic.

Kyung Pil Chang, 55, of Haymarket faces four felony charges related to an assault reported on Jan. 25.

According to the Fairfax County Police Department, a woman reported that Chang fondled and penetrated her while giving her a massage at the Annandale Gerontology Clinic (4216 Evergreen Lane).

“The victim was able to stop the assault, left the business, and reported the incident,” the police news release says.

Major Crimes Bureau detectives began investigating that night and later identified Chang as the masseuse. They obtained three warrants yesterday (Thursday) of aggravated sexual battery, along with one warrant each for object sexual penetration and practicing as an unlicensed masseuse.

Chang turned himself in to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center today (Friday) and is now being held there without bond, according to the FCPD.

Police say Chang was a contractor for “several other businesses” in Fairfax County, and detectives are now seeking to identify those locations.

“Detectives are asking anyone with information about this case or believe Chang had inappropriate contact with them to please call our Major Crimes Bureau,” the FCPD said.
