Massage therapist arrested in connection to Scottsdale sexual assault

Scottsdale police arrested a massage therapist last week in connection with a sexual assault allegation reported by a female client at a massage business.   

The massage therapist was identified as 34-year-old Jonathan Riggs, according to Maricopa County Superior Court documents. 

On Aug. 11, a woman contacted Scottsdale police to report that she had been inappropriately touched during a massage, court documents said.

In a police interview, the woman said she had been a licensed massage therapist for the last six years and was familiar with massage procedures.

She told police she did not notice anything unusual during the first 45 minutes of the massage and she was relaxed. After some small talk, she began to doze off. When she woke up, she felt Riggs work on her right hip and eventually make his way into her “bikini zone,” according to court documents.
