Tribeca.- I was sexually assaulted by a ‘masseuse’ at a high-end spa



A high-end Tribeca spa is being sued by a woman went in for a massage and was instead molested by a pervert masquerading as a “therapist,” a new $5 million lawsuit charges.
Edgeman Seker was working as a “masseuse” at the posh Aire Ancient Baths in March 2014 — despite lacking a license to perform massage therapy — when he sexually assaulted the woman, whose name is being withheld by The Post, her suit claims.
“Throughout the course of the ‘massage,’ Seker intermittently touched plaintiff offensively and inappropriately on the intimate parts of her body, including her buttocks, breasts, inner thighs, pelvic region, and vagina. Seker interspersed his offensive touching with seemingly normal ‘massage’ techniques,” the Manhattan suit states.

After he finished assaulting her, the creep whispered in her ear, “I hope you enjoyed that,”the suit says. The woman immediately told a manager, and left.
But the luxurious Franklin Street spa continued to employ Seker, despite his lack of license, and also ignored two online Yelp complaints in which customers reported he had touched them inappropriately as well.
Aire Ancient Baths was also “uncooperative” with a subsequent police investigation, the court papers charge, but Seker was eventually fired from the spa, arrested in May 2014 and indicted on felony counts of sexual abuse and unauthorized practice of a profession.
He pleaded guilty in April 2015, and completed a court-approved program for registered sex offenders, records show.
The woman is suing the spa for negligence, battery, assault, infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotion distress.
“My client wants more than anything to prevent assault like the one she was subjected to from happening to anyone else,” attorney David Shanies said. “Spa businesses like Aire have a responsibility to put their clients in the hands of professionals, not predators.”
Seker could not be reached for comment.
“We intend to vigorously defend the Company against the allegations,” said Joan Toro, a lawyer for the spa. “Including the baseless allegations that Aire failed to cooperate with authorities or were non-responsive to the NYPD’s inquiries.”
