A 40-year-old massage therapist who has been charged with misdemeanor battery after allegedly groping a woman may have additional victims, according to the Eagle Police Department.

Aaron Lee Sundgaard is accused of groping a woman during an appointment at a spa located in the Eagle, Idaho area.

When questioned, Sundgaard told Eagle PD that he has worked as a massage therapist for 14 years and joined an Eagle, Idaho spa in December of 2014.

While Sundgaard was employed at the spa, a woman reported to police that during a session in early March, she was groped and had several explicit remarks made to her by Sundgaard.

Prosecutors reviewed the evidence and charged Sundgaard with the misdemeanor battery charge in April. He has a court date set for June 8. The crime of misdemeanor battery is punishable by up to six months in jail or a $1,000 fine.

Sundgaard no longer works at the spa where the battery occurred.
