  • Man accused of raping spa employee in Tampa
  • Bruce Wilson charged with robbery, sexual assault
  • Wilson accused of raping an employee at Zen Therapy Spa

The suspect, Bruce Wilson, 44, was arrested at his home Wednesday afternoon. 

Police said Wilson raped an employee at the Zen Therapy Spa on Lois Avenue, and it was all caught on video. 

According to authorities, Wilson came into Zen Therapy and asked an employee about prices. Police said he grabbed a piece of candy and began to gag. The victim brought him a bottle of water, but he began to cough again and asked for more. 

When the employee left to get more water, police said Wilson allegedly jumped over the counter, grabbed the victim by the hair, and took out a knife. 

At first, Wilson demanded money, but then said it was not enough and demanded the employee to take off her clothes, according to the report. That's when police said he raped her. 

Wilson reportedly ran off when another customer came in. He is facing felony charges for robbery and sexual assault with a weapon. 

The assault was caught on video, which is now being used as part of the investigation. 

Authorities also said the employee was the only one in the business when Wilson came in.
