Loewen operated Bud’s Massage Therapy, located in the 35400 block of Munroe Avenue in Abbotsford.

According to an online listing from three years ago, Loewen was certified through “Brandon Raynor’s School of Natural Therapies.”

Police at the time said they believed there might be witnesses with information about Loewen’s activities that could assist in the prosecution.

No further details have been released about the alleged assaults.
