A 37-year-old man was charged on Thursday in the rape of an employee at a Queens spa, police said.
The man, Luis Jessup, was charged with rape, criminal sex act, menacing, and criminal possession of a weapon for allegedly sexually assaulting the 42-year-old woman inside a Northern Boulevard spa on Feb. 21. Jessup apparently had an appointment scheduled for that day.
Jessup is accused of walking in at about 7:30 a.m. and brandishing a firearm before taking the woman into a backroom.
Jessup was awaiting arraignment on Thursday and could not be reached for comment.
