Plea entered in sexual assault case

A masseur from Hayward pleaded not guilty to four counts of misdemeanor sexual battery after his arrest Wednesday in San Mateo.

Two women, 23 and 32, have accused Kevin Raymond Bradshaw, 32, of inappropriately touching them when they saw him for massages at a San Mateo spa, San Mateo police Sgt. Bob Szelenyi said.

The first allegation came in January, when the 32-year-old woman reported the assault and identified Bradshaw as the alleged suspect. Earlier this month, the 23-year-old woman reported inappropriate touching to the San Mateo Police Department and also identified Bradshaw.

A $50,000 warrant was issued for his arrest, and San Mateo detectives took him into custody Wednesday at San Mateo County Jail for sexual battery. He was arraigned in San Mateo on Thursday afternoon for four misdemeanor sexual battery charges stemming from the two incidents, according to Elaine Tipton, supervising deputy district attorney for the Sexual Assault Unit.

He returned to jail after the plea, with bail set at $10,000.

Tipton said the jury trial will begin June 11.
