The massage therapist at the center of a year-long News4 Investigation, accused by more than 15 women of sexually touching them or himself during massages or job interviews, was arrested on Tuesday by Metro Police.

Tarek Mentouri was charged by police with impersonation of a licensed professional.

On Tuesday human trafficking detectives conducted a controlled undercover deal with Mentroui for a massage. The massage was scheduled and an agreed upon price for the massage was set.

As soon as the transaction for the money was taken by Mentroui, detectives entered the Glade Street home and placed Mentouri in custody.

Mentouri’s massage license is currently revoked in Tennessee.

Bond has been set for $2,500.

Detectives seized numerous items in the home under the scope of the investigation. is now with you on the go! Get the latest news updates and video, 4WARN weather forecast, weather radar, special investigative reports, sports headlines and much more from News4 Nashville.
