HOUSTON Omar Prado Ruiz, 34, is charged with felony sexual assault. According to court documents, on May 17, Ruiz was giving a massage to a client at Massage Heights in the 13400 block of Briar Forest. The client said she had requested Ruiz, as she had on numerous previous occasions.

The woman told police that about 45 minutes into the massage, Ruiz began touching her in areas that made her uncomfortable and then he sexually assaulted her. She immediately sat up and demanded he leave the room.

The woman said Ruiz left, but re-entered the room while she was dressing and begged her not to tell anyone for fear of losing his job. The woman obtained a sexual assault exam the same day.
