Sexual assault allegations against a Blumenort massage therapist date back to 2010, according to court records.

Kenneth Klass Wall, who operated Ken's Massage out of his Blumenort home, faces nine counts of sexual assault, which includes alleged offences which lasted for several months to charges that occurred on a single date. Wall's matter first appeared in Steinbach provincial court on Thursday. The case was remanded until Mar. 5.

Wall was first arrested on Nov. 2. Following the arrest RCMP said they believed there may have been other victims. On Dec. 22, Wall was rearrested on eight further counts of sexual assault. The majority of the charges stem from alleged incidents in 2014 but some of the charges date back to 2010, 2011, and 2013.

The dates of the nine charges include:

  • Sept. 1, 2010 to Oct. 31, 2010
  • Mar. 1, 2011 to Jun. 11, 2011
  • Dec. 1, 2013 to Oct. 31, 2014
  • May 7, 2014
  • July 1, 2014 to Aug. 31, 2014
  • March 1, 2014 to Apr. 30, 2014
  • Aug. 6, 2014
  • Sept. 1 to Sept. 30, 2014
  • Oct. 1, 2014 to Oct. 30, 2014

RCMP spokesperson Tara Seel would not say how many individuals stepped forward so as not to prejudice a case before the courts but said there were "multiple" victims.

Wall also faces a charge of sexual exploitation, a charge that alleges a person in a position of trust has exploited a young person and a charge for violating a no contact order on Nov. 3, the day after his initial arrest.
