Abilene massage therapist indicted for sexual assault



An Abilene massage therapist was indicted Thursday for sexual assault.

The victim had a massage appointment in November.

According to the indictment, her massage therapist, Michael James Walden, 50, “moved his hand closer than usual to her breasts and anus.”

When Walden massaged her legs, “he also moved his hand closer than usual to her genitals.”

At one point, he “penetrated her (genitalia) with his finger.”

Walden asked her if that was ok. She told him no.

After she left, the woman called police.

Police said Walden admitted he put his finger in the victim’s genitalia without her permission.

At the time, police asked anyone else who may have been a victim to call Detective Martinez at 325-676-6614.
