MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — A mall masseur in Mankato is accused of inappropriately touching a customer.
A woman told police that a male employee at Relaxing Message at the River Hills Mall touched her sexually over her bra and pants Wednesday.
Fengwu Li, of Eagle Lake, is charged with three felony counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct.
The Mankato Free Press reports the 31-year-old denied the allegations.
Public defender Mike Mountain said Li traveled to the United States with a tourist visa from China, then applied for resident alien status due to religious oppression.
Amy Zhang said she was working with Li when the touching allegedly occurred. The massage tables are surrounded by curtains so Zhang said the woman could have said something.
The victim told police she was afraid when Li started touching her sexually.
