Six women in all have told police that Kim Hyung, 53, of Fresh Meadows, N.Y., inappropriately touched and/or spoke to them while they received massages at Coco Spa in Shelton, police said.

On Tuesday, Hyung was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and practicing massage therapy without a license on each warrant. 

He was arraigned in Derby Superior Court and released on $20,000 court-set bond, police said. 

On July 5, Hyung was first arrested and charged with two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault and practicing massage without a license, after the police department received two complaints from female clients of Hyung, police said.

The first complaint came on May 6, from a 36-year-old woman, who said that Hyung inappropriately touched her during a massage at the spa at 704 Bridgeport Ave., police said.

Another woman complained to police on May 28 that Hyung inappropriately touched and spoke to her during a massage session at Coco Spa.

Neither woman knew each other, and during the arrest it was discovered that he did not have a license to practice massage therapy in the state, police said.

Police are still investigating the incidents are asking anyone who may have experienced a similar incident at the spa to contact the Shelton police at 203-924-1544.
