A Norman massage therapist has been charged in Cleveland County District Court with five felony counts of sexual battery stemming from client complaints.

Walter Hugh McLauchlan, 38, was arrested Wednesday at Serenity Massage, 1005 N Flood Ave., where police detectives said they went undercover to investigate complaints from three women.

According to a court affidavit, the women told police a man named “Mac” touched them in a “lewd and lascivious manner without their consent.”

A female detective went undercover to the massage parlor and was assaulted by a man who identified himself as “Mac,” the affidavit states.

The first complaint came in February. The undercover officer said she received two other complaints from women in June. She returned to the massage parlor and was assaulted a second time by the same man.

McLauchlan remained in the Cleveland County jail Thursday in lieu of bail set at $20,000.
