    Massage Therapist Arrested for Unlawful Sexual Contact

    Lakewood police have arrested a 27-year-old Lakewood man on suspicion of unlawfully touching a massage client at the massage school where he worked.
    Steven Emerson Noble was employed by the Colorado School of Healing Arts in Lakewood in January when he is alleged to have touched a 16-year-old massage client in a sexual manner.

    According to court records, on January 14th the 16-year-old went with her mother to the massage school where they both received massages. Following her massage the teen told her mother that Noble had inappropriately touched her intimate parts, exposed her upper body and taken photographs of her while her upper body was exposed. Her mother reported this to the Lakewood Police Department who investigated the allegations and presented the case to the District Attorney’s Office.

    Noble’s first appearance in Jefferson County Court was on January 27. A $5,000 bond was set and the District Attorney’s Office has until February 2nd to make a decision on filing charges. Noble will be back in court at 10:00 on February 2, 2012.

    This is an ongoing investigation and detectives would like to talk to anyone who might have additional information on this case. Anyone with information can contact Lakewood Detective Anthony Gherardini at 303-987-7111. Because this investigation is ongoing, a booking photo will not be released at this time.
