A 17-year-old boy has been charged after he allegedly told a masseuse he was having trouble breathing during an “all girl” massage session.
The incident occurred on the Sunshine Coast on Thursday afternoon.
On Monday, the boy was arrested on charges of assaulting and threatening to assault a woman at a massage parlor.
A 17 year old boy has also been charged with assaulting and intimidating a woman who was being paid by a massage service to perform a massage.
Police allege the boy, who is not a family member, told the woman she was having difficulty breathing during the massage.
“I was really uncomfortable and I felt really cold,” the woman told ABC News.
“It was very stressful for me.”
The woman said she later woke up at the emergency department with cuts and bruises on her face, chest and back.
The woman and her partner were in a car when they saw a man, believed to be the boy’s brother, approaching their vehicle.
The boy and his brother were seen running from the vehicle and the girl ran towards her car with her hands in the air.
The police allege the man grabbed the girl’s arm and then told her, “You better come with me or I’ll have to call the police.”
The boy was taken into custody by police.
“The boy then ran away from the scene and we are investigating how the boy managed to run away from police,” Victoria Police said in a statement.
The girl’s father told ABC news the boy is not their son.
“This is an extremely disturbing incident, particularly as this was the first time in our family’s history that we had a police incident,” the father, Michael O’Connor, told ABC.
A 19-year old woman was also arrested at the scene. “
His older brother has been a very good, decent, loving, caring and loving person, but now he’s been brought up to be this person that’s a threat to the whole family.”
A 19-year old woman was also arrested at the scene.
She is expected to appear in court on Monday.
Victoria Police confirmed the teenager was arrested and charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
He is expected back in court in the coming days.
