What’s the expression? One picture speaks a thousand words?

Although one should never judge a book by its cover, but when the cover has a somewhat ruddy look and is in a profession where looks matter; would you allow someone looking like the pictured suspect in a massage parlor accused of ‘inappropriate touching’ to go anywhere near you?

One woman did; and while she should not be blamed for the unfortunate incident she suffered – still, you’d have to be suspicious of someone calling himself a “massage therapist” looking like one of the Oak Ridge Boys.

Unless, maybe, he claims to use his beard as some kind of novel loofa.

Call it ‘beard bias’ – but if I were a woman, that’s not someone I’d be looking to for a deep tissue massage.

An independent massage therapist is facing charges of sexual assault after he allegedly became too touchy at an Englewood day spa, according to prosecutors.

Felipe D. Cruz, 52, was arrested Tuesday in Englewood on one count of sexual assault, a second degree charge, and one count of criminal sexual contact, a fourth degree charge.

A female customer of the D2 Day Spa in Englewood claims that during a massage session, Cruz, of Englewood, "inappropriately fondled" her.

"The victim stopped the session, confronted Cruz and then contacted the Englewood Police Department, who notified the Special Victims Unit," Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said. "An investigation ensued resulting in the arrest of Cruz. Cruz has done independent work for D2 Day Spa for about one year."

The massage therapist remains at Bergen County Jail in lieu of $75,000 bail.

There are loads of witticisms one could come up with to describe the accused. Far be it from me to try and best the members of the Rossi Posse – so if possible, give me your impressions.
