Pinellas sheriff's officials have arrested a Largo massage therapist on a charge that he sexually battered a client.

Ronald D. Bruinius, 36, of 10570 68th Ave. N, was arrested Monday night on a sexual battery charge. Deputies identified his place of business as Ronnie's Body Work Massage, 10671 104th Ave. N in Largo.

Deputies said they started investigating Nov. 19 after a 53-year-old woman filed a complaint that Bruinius had touched her sexually during a massage in July.

Any other clients with similar experiences can call Detective Guy Kirby of the Special Victims Unit at 727-582-6200.
