Massage Business Owner has Battery Charges Upgraded

FLEMING ISLAND, Fla. -- Charges have been upgraded against a First Coast salon owner who already was accused of simple battery on a woman during a massage at the Bamboo Garden Salon.

According to Clay County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Mary Justino, charges against Armando Dibenedetto, 51, have been upgraded from simple battery when he was arrested April 25, to attempted sexual battery, a felony.

He was arrested again and bonded out of the Clay County Jail Wednesday night.

Two adult women who were clients reported the alleged batteries, according to the CCSO.

The simple battery charge was related to the second accuser who came forward. He already was charged with sexual battery related to accusations made by the first woman.

Dibenedetto now faces two felony charges plus a charge of operating a massage business without a license.
