Police arrested a Palo Alto massage therapist for the sexual battery of four young women in 2012.
Vashisht was no longer an employee at the salon by the time the last three investigations were revealed, according to a police press release.
Police presented the case to the District Attorney's Office, which filed charges against Vashisht. He surrendered himself to police on Dec. 18, at which point he was charged for misdemeanor sexual battery. He was released after posting bail, police stated.
Detectives aren't aware of any other victims but ask anyone with information about Vashisht to call 650-329-2413, send an anonymous tip to firstname.lastname@example.org or text message or voice mail to 650-383-8984.
