DAVIE, FLA. (WSVN) - A Davie masseur has been arrested after he was accused of inappropriately touching a 17-year-old girl.
Orlay Palacio is now behind bars and faces a charge of lewd lascivious conduct on a minor.
Police said the girl and an older cousin went to the Massage and Stretch Center, near Griffin Road and South University Drive on May 3 to get massages. The girl said Palacio touched her inappropriately multiple times and also touched himself during the massage.
“The only masseuse available that day was Mr. Palacio, who I’ve been told is the owner of the business, as well,” said Davie Police Sgt. Mark Leone.
The victim told detectives that because she was alone in the room with Palacio, she didn’t say anything as it was happening.
“The 17-year-old victim who had her massage, she was told to fully undress, including her underwear, which she thought was a bit odd, so she decided to leave her underwear on,” Leone said. “Sometime during the massage, the offender had removed her underwear and began to place his hands between her legs.”
Palacio was identified through a photo line-up and arrested at the massage parlor.
Police are still on the lookout for more potential victims.
