BOULDER, Colo. - A Boulder massage therapist and greenhouse owner has been arrested, accused of sexually assaulting an injured woman he had offered to heal.
Greg Mingchiu Ching, 54, who owns Aspen Meadows Aquatic Center in Nederland, was arrested on charges of sexual assault.
The sheriff's office said Ching lured an injured woman to his home massage studio under the pretense of a healing massage.
The woman first became acquainted with Ching through Facebook. He asked for her help with a booth at a fair where he was to sell greenhouse construction material. He indicated he would be unable to pay her, but offered her an aquatic massage in trade. During the massage, Ching sexually assaulted her, the sheriff's office said.
The Boulder Sheriff’s Office said the woman may not be the first person who has been victimized by Ching. If you have information about previous alleged assaults, contact Detective Don Dillard at 303-441-4992.
