Sandy Springs masseur fired after allegedly sexually assaulting customer

A masseur is accused of sexually assaulting a 21-year-old woman in a Sandy Springs massage parlor, authorities said.

Chatari Henegar, of Atlanta, faces two counts of sexual battery, one count of aggravated sodomy and one count of aggravated sexual battery after the Tuesday incident at Massage Heights, where he worked, Channel 2 Action News reported.

The woman’s mother said it happened last week, and she called 911 immediately afterwards.

“My daughter is 21-years-old. She went and had a massage today and basically she was raped,” the mother said in a 911 call obtained by Channel 2. “The gentleman has access to her address, her phone number and everything. She’s scared to death right now.”

Once Massage Heights learned of the allegations against Henegar and his arrest, the company fired him, the news station reported.

“Massage Heights Franchising and the local franchise have a zero-tolerance policy related to inappropriate behavior, including sexual misconduct, and our priority is to do everything possible to protect the thousands of members and guests our franchises serve” Massage Heights said in a statement.

Henegar remains in custody at Fulton County Jail without bond, records show.
