BREAKING: Jeremy Finley, an investigative report for WSMV in Nashville Tennessee is reporting that Tarek Mentouri has been arrested regarding more that a dozen reports of sexual assault during massage appointment with the former the massage therapist. Currently police are at his home searching his house for evidence. It’s been a long time coming. Jeremy Finley has been contacting victims this afternoon to let them know the pervert is finally behind bars.
Oddly, Tarek has contacted me as recently as April 8th of this year claiming he was selling his house and asked that comments be removed that include his address and phone number. It seems to me like he realized that an arrest was imminent and he was trying to get the hell out of dodge.
You can follow Jeremy Finley, who has been covering this investigation for over a year on Twitter. I expect a full report will be up on the WSMV website later tonight. I can’t for the life of me figure out why it took so long to get this sexual predator off the street. Also, someone tried to comment about him “trying to scam them” recently but I stopped putting through comments on those old posts because he makes me feel unsafe. Let’s hope he doesn’t make bail. It looks to me like his first appearance may not happen until Monday.
It looks like for now that the only charge against him is for continuing to provide massage therapist services despite his license being revoked. According to Jeremy Finnley, ” Tarek Mentouri charged with an E felony, charged with impersonation of a licensed professional. Human trafficking detectives conducted a sting to see if he would provide a massage. Police say Mentouri agreed, even though his license is revoked.” Class E felonies, the least serious felonies in Tennessee, are punishable by one to six years in prison, as well as a fine of up to $3,000. The investigation is being handled by metro’s special victim’s unit, which encompasses Sex crimes; hopefully the sexual assault charges will be added.
Since the allegations against Mentouri have begun, he has attempted to fake his own death, and posted the photoshopped image above to claim he has an evil twin. He is clearly mentally unstable and a danger to women. I really home he doesn’t get out of jail.
