Kaysville chiropractor accused of sexually assaulting women during massages – KJZZ
KAYSVILLE, Utah (KUTV) —
Investigators say two women have reported being sexually assaulted by a chiropractor during visits to his clinic in Kaysville.
Kenneth Pierce, 55, was booked into the Davis County Jail over the weekend on two counts of object rape. One count pertains to a reported assault over the weekend, while the other one dates back to an alleged incident in July 2020.
Both women say Pierce penetrated them while giving them massages at the Right Now! Chiropractic clinic at 150 North Main Street.
One victim told police on Saturday that she was touched inappropriately by Pierce during a visit on Friday.
“When [the victim] went in for her appointment, she stated that [Pierce] locked the door behind her and that no one else was there. [Victim] was so terrified that she prayed that she would make it out of there. She was worried that she did not want to make him mad,” a Kaysville Police detective wrote in Pierce’s arrest report.
The victim said Pierce sexually touched her against her will and she “froze,” not knowing what to do. She also told police she saw a camera in the massage room and she believed Pierce had recorded the incident.
The detective who investigated the woman’s report noted that he had also received a report in May from a woman who said she had a similar encounter with Pierce the previous July, according to the arrest report.
Asked why nothing came of that earlier report until now, Kaysville Police Officer Lexie Benson told 2News, “I’m not sure. I know that both cases are actively, currently being investigated, so I know that they’re still being looked at.”
Benson said officers spoke to Pierce and found probable cause to arrest him.
“After reading [Pierce] his Miranda Warning and talking to him about his methods and techniques, I asked about the appointment he had today right before we detained him. [Pierce] stated that he did touch her vagina and anus but that she wanted it. When I asked for further details he requested an attorney,” the arrest report says.
The Kaysville Police detective requested a judge hold Pierce without bail, describing him as a “threat to society.” Police told 2News they believe there may be more …….
