A masseur at a Massage Envy location in Northwest D.C. tried to sexually abuse a woman, was allowed to stay on the job and then did sexually abuse a woman three weeks later, police say.

Days after a woman told police that the massage therapist at a franchise of the popular national chain sexually assaulted her, a second alleged victim came forward, court documents show.

Habtamu Gebreselassie, 24, of Silver Spring, Maryland, is now accused of attempting to sexually abuse a 66-year-old woman on Aug. 28 at the Tenleytown location on the 4900 block of Wisconsin Avenue NW.

On Monday, News4 reported Gebreselassie was accused of assaulting another woman at the same location on Sunday, Sept. 17, nearly three weeks later.
Management wrote a report, gave Gebreselassie additional training and allowed him to stay on the job, a D.C. detective testified.

Diane Kelley, a co-owner of the Tenleytown franchise, refused to answer News4's questions on Thursday. Asked repeatedly why she allowed Gebreselassie to keep working, she hung up the phone.:rolleyes:

A corporate spokesperson for Massage Envy said they could not comment on the franchise's "confidential employment matters."
