Piscataway man accused of fondling

UNION COUNTY: A Piscataway man was arraigned yesterday on sex-assault charges for allegedly fondling women at a Rahway medical treatment facility.

Kenneth C. May was arraigned before Superior Court Judge William L’E. Wertheimer, sitting in Elizabeth on second-degree sexual assault and third-degree sexual assault charges following his indictment on both charges, according to the Union County Prosecutor’s Office.

He also faces charges for allegedly taking nude pictures and digitally penetrating women during laser hair-removal procedures in Metuchen.

Three young women went to a facility on St. Georges Avenue in Rahway seeking laser hair-removal treatment during April and June of 2004. According to the women, May covered their eyes, and then placed a numbing solution on them and fondled them.

Rahway police began investigating May after he was arrested in Metuchen. Rahway police were contacted by Metuchen police after one of the women in the Metuchen case said she had also had laser hair-removal performed by May in Rahway.

May allegedly posed as a certified lab technician and allegedly assaulted the women during the course of the laser hair-removal procedure.

In Metuchen, May, owner of Laser-Med Services on Main Street, is accused of digitally penetrating a 23-year-old Fords woman during the laser-hair removal procedure in April 2004.

In June 2004, a 22-year-old woman went to May’s Metuchen office and reported he put a paper over her eyes to protect her from the laser. When she removed the paper she saw him taking her picture with a digital camera.
