A BACCHUS Marsh masseur stands accused of sexually assaulting two female clients.
Ronald Adrian Van Dorp, 52, fronted the Bacchus Marsh Magistrates Court for a bail application hearing yesterday.
He is charged with rape and indecent assault relating to separate incidents on two women in their 20s.
Van Dorp was arrested yesterday morning as part of a joint operation between the Moorabool Criminal Investigation Unit and the Ballarat Sexual Offence and Child Abuse Team.
It is alleged Van Dorp, owner of the Vitality Centre in Darley, first assaulted a 22-year-old woman on September 14.
Police allege he indecently assaulted the woman while giving her a massage.
After she left, Van Dorp allegedly sent the victim a Facebook message asking if she enjoyed the massage, before following up with a repeat message the following day.
The second alleged incident occurred on Tuesday, where police say Van Dorp sexually abused another victim, this time a 25-year-old woman.
It is alleged he digitally and orally assaulted the woman, before the victim realised what was happening and left the premises.
Both women had been to the Vitality Centre before.
A search warrant was executed at the premises of the accused, before he was arrested at the Bacchus Marsh police station.
Appearing at the Bacchus Marsh Magistrates Court yesterday, police did not oppose bail but requested strict bail conditions on Van Dorp.
He will face a committal mention at Ballarat Magistrates Court on January 30.
