A licensed massage therapist appeared in Broward County bond court Thursday accused of fondling a woman during a massage at a Fort Lauderdale Massage Envy.
And, according to the arrest report, management at that Massage Envy, 1917 Cordova Rd., asked the woman not to go to the police but to let the spa “handle it internally.”
Bond was set at $12,500 for Dania Beach’s Juan Pablo Mendiz, 32. According to the Florida Department of Health website, Mendiz has no previous discipline cases either as a licensed massage therapist or as a registered chiropractic assistant. He told police he’d been with Massage Envy for a year
