Los Angeles County prosecutors charged today a massage therapist working in Redondo Beach with assaulting a 16-year-old client during a massage.

Redondo Beach police arrested Shen Li, 32, of San Gabriel, Thursday after the victim contacted officers.

Li was in the middle of a message at his place of business in the 2500 block of Artesia Boulevard when he was arrested, according to a Redondo Beach Police Department press release.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office has charged Li with four felony counts of sexual battery.

Sgt. Shawn Freeman said he could not go into details of the alleged assault, but “sexual battery counts are (generally speaking) when a person touches the private parts of another.”

Based on the nature of the crimes officials believe Li committed, detectives are looking for other possible victims, who are asked to contact the Det. Clint Daniel, (310) 379-2477 ext. 2480 or email at clint.daniel@redondo.org.
