Glen Cove Man Charged With Sex Abuse

A Glen Cove man has been arrested for sexually abusing a female masseuse at a Hicksville spa two weeks ago, Nassau County police said.

James Catanzano was charged with first-degree sexual abuse at Red Bell Spa on Newbridge Road.

The 53-year-old suspect allegedly grabbed the victim’s arm “in an attempt to have her touch him in a sexual manner,” then touched her “in an inappropriate sexual manner” when she backed into a corner on Jan. 6, police have said.

The victim called 911 and the suspect fled, police said.

Catanzano will be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.
