NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS (KTRE) - A 30-year-old man was booked back into the Nacogdoches County Jail Wednesday in connection to allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman while he was giving her a professional massage at home back in July.

Caleb O’Neal Eaves, of Nacogdoches, was booked into the Nacogdoches Jail on a second-degree felony sexual assault charge. He was released from the jail later Wednesday after he posted a bail amount of $50,000.

According to the arrest affidavit, the victim made the initial outcry to the sheriff’s office on July 10. After a report was taken, a SANE exam was conducted on the woman. The exam revealed that she had an injury that was consistent with her claim that she had been sexually assaulted.

When the alleged victim talked to an NCSO investigator on July 11, she told him that after she received a gift certificate for a massage from a friend, she went to Eaves’ home in the 200 block of County Road 415 to redeem it.

"You don't expect it to happen when you go to a business and get taken advantage, but that's what happened here," Nacogdoches Sheriff Jason Bridges said.

During the massage, Eaves allegedly removed the woman’s underwear and told her to turn over onto her back. Then Eaves began massaging the woman’s genital area and sexually assaulted her by penetrating her vagina with his fingers, the affidavit stated.

"Unfortunately, we handle a lot of sexual assaults in our county and we take all of these serious," Bridges said.

Later, the NCSO investigator interviewed Eaves, and Eaves admitted to sexually assaulting the woman with his fingers and touching her breasts, the affidavit stated. In response to a question about why he sexually assaulted the woman, Eaves replied that he did it because the woman was “cute, young, and free,” the affidavit stated.

According to the affidavit, Eaves acknowledged that the sexual assault was wrong and said that he knew sexually assaulting a client was unethical for a massage therapist.

“Caleb Eaves also admitted that he gave a discount to college students who came to his residence for a massage, and the majority of his business came from his wife, a professor at Stephen F. Austin State University, referring female students to him,” the affidavit stated.

Bridges said the case is still open and he believes there could be more victims.

"We have not identified any other victims at this point," Bridges said. "There was a statement made that leads us to believe this has occurred before."
