Man Arrested For Attempted Robbery, Sexual Assault At Ventura Massage Business

Posted on Monday, June 10, 2013 12:32am

A Los Angeles man is facing multiple charges, after police say he tried to rob a Ventura massage business, and then sexually assaulted one of its employees.

Ventura Police say Tyrane White entered the business on the 700 block of East Main Street, and demanded money from a woman at the front counter.

She told the 27 year old man there was no money, but he punched her in the face, knocking her through a window. Police say he then dragged her into a massage room, and sexually assaulted her. The victim was able to eventually escape, and White was captured a short time later.

The woman was treated, and released at a hospital for her injuries.
