PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Peoria say a massage therapist has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing clients.

They say 30-year-old Derrick Scott Douglas turned himself in to detectives on Friday.

The Glendale man is being held on suspicion of four counts of sexual abuse.

It was unclear Friday if Douglas has a lawyer yet.

Police say they began an investigation on Jan. 30 after receiving reports that Douglas had inappropriately touched clients while providing massages at a business in north Peoria.

Authorities say Douglas has worked as a massage therapist in Maricopa and Pima counties.
