NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A New Orleans masseur is accused of sexual battery on a woman during a session at the Ritz-Carlton spa, where massages cost $145 to $275.

Thirty-year-old Charles J. Russo’s bond was set Monday at $75,000.

He remains in the Orleans Parish jail. It was not clear whether he had an attorney.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune (https://bit.ly/ZVPP33) reports that Russo was arrested Sunday, five months after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Police warrants allege that a customer accused Russo of masturbating during a session on June 1, 2013. The woman told police she told hotel staff and security, but they did not help her call police.

Ritz-Carlton general manager Jim Oliver says the hotel does not comment on pending litigation.
