A metro massage therapist has been charged with rape and sexual battery after a client said he inappropriately touched her during the massage.

An undercover operation actually led to his arrest.

The manager at Petra’s Massage wouldn't tell News 9 if the massage therapist is still employed at the business.

The woman told police she fell asleep during her massage with Troy Farmer while she was "face down on the massage table."

She woke up to "Farmer as he rubbed her inner thigh" and private area.

The victim claimed Farmer then inserted multiple fingers inside her.

According to court documents, Farmer asked her to roll over on to her back but the woman refused.

The woman told an investigator "Farmer once again tried to rub her" private area but she turned away to prevent him from touching her there.

On Monday, News 9 questioned the Petra’s Massage manager about these allegations.

Reporter: "We picked up some court documents about an employee here named Troy Farmer?"

Manager: "Uh huh."

Reporter: "Do you know him?"

Manager: "Um, yes."

Reporter: "OK, so this is talking a little about a client that came in said that he had rubbed his fingers on her inner thigh and then into the vagina. Then, last week, the vice unit came in, undercover, and he had done the same thing so he was arrested. Did you know anything about this?"

Manager: "Mmmhmm."

The manager said very little about the alleged incident, but was aware of the undercover sting that happened last Tuesday.

The detective reported Farmer touched her private area "with his fingers" during a massage. Farmer was immediately arrested.
