Additional charges laid against Calgary massage therapist

Investigators from the Calgary Police Service Sex Crimes Unit have laid additional charges against a massage therapist previously charged with sexual assault.

Following a media release last month, four additional victims came forward to police to report alleged sexual assaults that occurred during massage treatments at the Movement Sports Clinic, located in the 100 block of 9 Avenue S.W. All four victims are adult men and reported that the assaults took place between February and October 2018

As a result, Dennis Quebral BALTAZAR, 44, of Calgary, was charged with an additional four counts of sexual assault. He will next appear in court on Friday, April 26, 2019.

In total, seven charges of sexual assault have been laid in this investigation.

Police would like to thank the Movement Sports Clinic for their support and full cooperation throughout this investigation. Police believe that the accused had previously worked at multiple other massage clinics throughout Calgary.

The CPS encourages anyone who feels they have been a victim of sexual assault to report it to police. Victims of sexual assault can report it to police by calling 403-266-1234, or 9-1-1 if they are in immediate danger.

There is no time limit on how long a victim has to report a sexual assault in Canada.
