A Dobbs Ferry man is being charged with criminal mischief, unlawful imprisonment and forcible touching after misinterpreting the services included by a masseuse he ordered online, police said.
Police said James Corradina, 53, ordered a massage from a female masseuse on Lavalife.com – an online dating site – on Wednesday, Jan. 1. After the initial massage was given in the defendant's home, the victim reported that a dispute ensued after he demanded, “something more should take place.”
Corradina allegedly “grabbed her buttocks numerous times,” which led to a physical struggle. During the altercation, the defendant took the victim’s cell phone and broke it, while not letting her leave his residence. The phone was valued at more than $250, police said.
Police said Corradina is being charged with criminal mischief in the third degree, a felony, unlawful imprisonment, forcible touching, harassment, and petty larceny – all misdemeanors.
The defendant was arrested on Thursday, Jan. 2 and arraigned in Hastings-on-Hudson with a $1,000 bail, as there was no court in Dobbs Ferry that day. Police said Corradina has since posted bail and is scheduled to appear in Dobbs Ferry court on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 10 a.m.
