SALEM, OR (KPTV) -

A Marion County massage therapist is accused of inappropriately touching his customers and staring at their naked bodies.

Bryce Cioffi, 23, of Turner, was arrested Monday on the charge of sexual harassment.

Marion County deputies said the investigation began Feb. 14 after a client reported being inappropriately touched by Cioffi. Investigators said there were at least two victims.

The suspect was working at This One's 4 You Salon and Boutique in Salem at the time.

The business released a statement to Fox 12 saying Cioffi was an independent contractor who had worked at the business for about 10 months. The owners said they are cooperating with the investigation.

Deputies said Cioffi was "touching his clients in areas that massage therapists are not trained to touch during normal massage, and uncovering his clients and staring at their unclothed bodies."

Investigators believe he may have worked at other massage businesses in the Salem area, and there could be additional victims.

A judge released Cioffi from custody Tuesday. Court records show he has a plea change hearing set for March. Cioffi declined to comment Wednesday.
