S.F. man allegedly goes nuts after masseuse refuses sex act 

No one ended up happy after this massage.

A 54-year-old San Francisco man has been charged with misdemeanor battery, assault and vandalism after allegedly becoming irate when he did not receive sexual services at a massage parlor near Civic Center.

Hector Cintron pleaded not guilty to the charges Tuesday.

The stressful incident unfolded May 27, police said, when Cintron rolled into the Rainbow Star Acupressure Center on Polk Street in a wheelchair and paid $35 for a massage.

Fifteen minutes after entering a private room, according to the massage therapist, Cintron asked for either oral or manual stimulation. The victim refused and said sex acts were not performed at the business.

A shirtless Cintron demanded a refund and allegedly became enraged when he didn't get one. He spit on and assaulted one of the employees, police said, and then threatened to break a window.

Cintron then reportedly left, but returned five minutes later armed with two rocks and a sandbag. He hurled all of it at the front of the business, shattering a glass window, police said.

Cintron was arrested on the same block after one of the victims flagged down officers.

A judge has ordered Cintron to stay at least 200 feet from the business and its employees. A pretrial conference in the case is scheduled for Aug. 6, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said Wednesday.
