From the December 2014-January 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
A masseur charged with a sexual assault at Massage Escape Spa (2352 Wisconsin Ave.) is believed to have fled to China, court documents show. Zhenkai Tong, who worked under the name “Tommy,” was arrested on October 4 after a client called police to report that he had violated her digitally during a massage. Two days later, Tong was charged with felony sex abuse and released on his own recognizance. He was ordered to surrender his passport to authorities, but instead used it to flee the country around October 9, court documents state.

News4′s Shomari Stone interviewed the client. When the massage became invasive, she told Stone, “my first thought was, ‘Am I going to die here?’ I felt that literally nobody knew where I was.” The client yelled for Tong to stop, but he held her down on the table and told her there was still time left her the massage, according to the criminal complaint. After she was able to free herself, Tong told her, “It’s OK. I’m sorry. I’m sorry,” the complaint states.

On October 27, the client filed suit against the spa and Groupon, through which she had received a discount for the massage. The suit alleges that Tong was not properly licensed and that spa management failed to take corrective action after a prior customer posted a warning about inappropriate sexual contact on the spa’s Yelp page. At press time, neither defendant had filed a formal response to the suit. An initial conference in the case is scheduled for January 30.

Beginning Monday, June 16, Whole Foods (2323 Wisconsin Ave.) will deliver orders over $30 for free between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays.

“Currently we have an email alias, inahurrygtn@wholefoods.com, which you can use to set up an order for pick-up and, starting tomorrow, delivery,” explains customer service associate team leader Oliver Joslin. “Basically you send us your shopping list, and we will shop the order for you. We usually end up having questions, so we call or email the customer after we finish shopping and to finalize payment.” The delivery radius is approximately 1.5 miles.

Would-be delivery customers must register with the store by filling out a “Bike Delivery Profile” and a credit-card authorization and reading a list of frequently asked questions. The forms can be mailed to the store, dropped off, or emailed to Joslin at oliver.joslin@wholefoods.com. Or, Joslin says, the delivery person can collect the forms when making the first delivery.

“Right now I only have one delivery man/woman scheduled for these shifts per day,” Joslin notes. “If the community really supports this and it grows in popularity I will receive more funding for more shifts and extend the delivery days and times. Also I will be rewarding customers who successfully refer others in the community with gift cards and free products.” (Hyperlocal Glover Park does not accept compensation for coverage.)

If you have questions, you can contact Joslin by email or at 202-333-5393.
