The women reported Manrique Yepez, 48, to police after the alleged incidents occurred at The Spa in Orlando.

According to an affidavit obtained by WOFL, one of the women told a deputy she met with Yepez on Oct. 20 and requested he “target her neck and shoulders, which he initially did.” During the massage, she claimed, the suspect began to “massage her thighs” and touch her improperly.

On Oct. 21, the deputy met with the second alleged victim. She reported she had gone to Yepez at least five time previously with no problems.

On her most recent visit, however, she alleged Yepez “touched her vagina outside her underwear on several occasions” among other inappropriate activity, the affidavit states.

Yepez was arrested on two counts of sexual battery and he was being held without bond.

Detectives believe there may be more victims and have asked anyone with information about possible cases to call (407) 836-4357.
