A Hilton Hotel masseur told a bride on her hen night he would doing something “special” to relax her moments before molesting the woman, a jury heard.
She was the second woman 34 year-old Mohamed El-Alfie had groped between the legs that day and the third in total, Isleworth Crown Court was told.
El-Alfie, of Brackenbury Road, Hammersmith denies preying on the two women at the hotel’s Kallima spa in Syon Park, Brentford on January 2, 2015.
He has also pleaded not guilty to a similar allegation involving the third woman at The Happiness Centre, Uxbridge Road, Shepherd’s Bush on September 12, 2012.
Prosecutor Mr. Alisdair Smith told the jury the bride already felt “exposed” due to the small towel available for her hen night massage.
“Mr. El-Alfie uncovered her breasts and massaged them and asked if she wanted a ‘special massage’ something that would make her feel very relaxed.”
He then groped her between the legs. “She says she felt like a rabbit in the headlights and she put her hand on his and said: ‘That’s enough.’
“Earlier the same day a mother and daughter visited the spa and the mother was massaged by Mr. El-Alfie.
“He moved her legs slightly apart before slipping his hand between them. He pushed his fingers inside her four or five times.
“She said: ‘You have got to stop that right now’ and he said he just wanted to pleasure her.”
After speaking with her family the woman reported El-Alfie to the police, who questioned the masseur.
He described the mother as “odd” and “fishy” insisting: “There’s no way I’m going to touch someone. I’m married and massage women everyday.”
As a result police reopened an investigation from over two years earlier when a keen cyclist in her late thirties, claimed she was similarly molested by El-Alfie after booking a sports massage.
“He asked her to take her pants off and she was rather surprised that he just pulled them down and right off,” explained Mr. Smith.
“He massaged her inner thigh and in doing so touched her intimately five to six times and that touching began to make her feel uncomfortable.
“At one stage he was on top of the table sat astride her and asked if she had a boyfriend and she said she was married.”
The woman was flipped onto her back and again El-Alfie touched her between the legs, the jury were told.
“He massaged her breasts without really asking her and afterwards asked if she would go for a drink with him.
“She refused to pay, saying she did not expect to be: ‘Felt up’ and reported Mr. El-Alfie to the police.
Without any further evidence El-Alfie was not initially charged in relation to that complainant.
He has pleaded not guilty to one count of sexually assaulting the bride, one count of assault by penetration in relation to the mother and sexually assaulting and penetrating the cyclist.
