Chino Valley Masseurs In Set Of Sexual Assaults On Women Clients

For the second time in four months, a sexual assault has been made on a female customer seeking massage services from therapists plying their trade in the Chino Valley, according to law enforcement authorities.
The May 3 incident involving Omar De Soto in Chino Hills and the January 17 matter in Chino in which Edgar Uriel Estrada was implicated have multiple similarities.
On January 17, 2021, a woman went to Massage Green Spa at 3926 Grand Avenue in Chino for a Sunday massage. According to the woman, her massage therapist attempted to rape her.
Thereafter she drove to the Chino Police Department headquarters, arriving at 1:49 p.m., where she reported the assault. Officers with the department set about trying to identify and locate the perpetrator.
Ultimately, the therapist was identified as Edgar Uriel Estrada, 27 of Moreno Valley. Estrada was summoned to the police station by a detective. When he arrived at the headquarters around 9 p.m. on the evening of January 17, a further investigation including questioning of Estrada took place. He was arrested at 9:29 p.m. and booked on suspicion of sexual penetration with force at 1:08 a.m. Monday, January 18 on $200,000 bail at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.
This week, county court records are not available to allow a determination of whether Estrada is yet in custody.
On May 2 another massage therapist from Riverside County forced himself sexually upon one of his customers in a fashion reminiscent of the previous assault.
In that case, a 49-year-old Chino Hills woman arranged to have a Sunday massage through an online company, Soothe, which sets up such services. Soothe sent 38-year-old Omar De Soto to the location specified by the woman.
After De Soto initiated the massage treatment, he sexually assaulted the woman.
Subsequently, the woman contacted the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, which serves as the police department for Chino Hills. She told detectives she had been sexually assaulted in the course of the treatment.
The following day, Monday May 3, De Soto was taken into custody and jailed at the West Valley Detention Center, on suspicion of sexual assault. Initially held in lieu of $100,000, De Soto has been released after a bond was posted for him.
