Woman says massage therapist inappropriately touched her at Massage Envy

Ruslan Grushco, 44, was arrested and charged with three counts of misdemeanor battery in February after three victims reported that Grushco inappropriately touched them during a massage at the Sarasota Massage Envy. 

Now, Grushco is facing additional charges for reportedly molesting a minor between 2000 and 2002. 

After the Massage Envy incidents made headlines, Sarasota police detectives received a call from a female victim who says Grushco inappropriately touched her when she was between the ages of 10 and 12 years old in the City of Sarasota. 

The victim told police that she lived with Grushco at the time of the abuse and the victim's mother was dating and later married Grushco. She told detectives Grushco would pick the lock to her bedroom door and touch her inappropriately. The abuse also happened in public, according to police. 

Grushco has been charged with three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation. Grushco is being held at the Sarasota County Jail on $150,000 bond.
