A Suffolk massage therapist is facing two new charges of sexual abuse after being accused of inappropriately touching clients.
Matthew Widener, 33, turned himself in to police Monday night and was arraigned on the additional sexual abuse charges Tuesday morning.
He entered a not guilty plea and was released on his own recognizance.
Widener was charged last month after being accused of inappropriately touching a 34-year-old woman while massaging her at KarasMatic Day Spa in Bayport. News 12 reported that he was fired from that location.
Detectives say Widener also worked at Element Day Spa in Smithtown. They are asking anyone else who believes they may be a victim to contact them.
