A Cedar City massage therapist is facing felony sexual assault charges after an accusation of inappropriate touching by a female patient.

The incident reportedly took place in August.

42-year-old Tyler Braun was questioned by investigators on Friday, and charged, on Monday in 5th District Court with second-degree felony forcible sexual abuse.  

According to Cedar City Police Sargent Justin Ludlow, since the arrest, other women have come forward with “multiple complaints of inappropriate touching during a massage.”  Additional charges may be forthcoming.
