ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An Anderson massage therapist is accused of sexually assaulting two teenage girls receiving treatment at his office, according to deputies.

Anderson County deputies said Jesus Garcia, 57, owns Garcia Massotherapy and Wellness Center located at 218B Shockley Ferry Rd.

Deputies said the 15-year-old victims were being treated when Garcia engaged in sexual battery with them.

Garcia was arrested on two counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor, second degree, at his home on Monday, according to deputies.

"At this point in the investigation, we don't know if there may be other victims in this case," said Sheriff John Skipper. "If anyone else, who has been treated by Garcia, has experienced this same type of criminal act, we ask them to step forward and contact Investigator Danny Barton at (864) 231-1937."

Anyone with additional information can also contact Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC (274-6372).
