SAN MATEO

Trial date set for masseur charged with sexual battery

A Sept. 17 jury trial has been set for a San Mateo massage therapist accused of sexual battery of two clients.

Kevin Bradshaw, 31, has pleaded not guilty to four misdemeanors. He was arrested Jan. 1. Prosecutors say Bradshaw kissed a woman on her thigh during a massage at a San Mateo spa.

He was fired after the incident, but soon went to work for another San Mateo spa, where he was accused of touching a woman in her genital area, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
