Local masseuse accused of sexual assault

Two woman claim their massage therapist inappropriately touched them.

HOUSTON – Two woman claim their massage therapist inappropriately touched them. Curtis Diwon Watkins, 42, is charged with two counts of sexual assault of an adult.

Watkins works at Massage Les Studio on Augusta Drive near the Galleria.  According to Texas Department of State and Health Services online records, Watkins license as a massage therapist in Texas expired in June.

In July, a woman who had been to Massage Les for treatment before paid for a two-hour massage with Watkins, court records said.  The woman later told police Watkins touched her inappropriately near the end of her massage.

A month later, another woman complained that Watkins did the same to her near the end of a massage.

When questioned by Houston Police investigators, Watkins told officers, “every last one of them gave me consent to touch whatever I needed to touch,” according to the probable cause document.

Eight years ago, Watkins pled guilty to aggravated robbery.  His parents told KHOU 11 News their son never wants to go back to prison and they believe he is innocent. 

Watkins is being held in the Harris County Jail on a $30,000 bond.
