REHOBOTH, Del. - A Laurel man is accused of trying to get a spa worker to perform a sexual act on him, and then assaulting her when she refused.

Delaware State Police say it all started around 10:00 PM on Thursday, at the Sunshine Spa on Coastal Highway in Rehoboth, when 35-year-old Matthew Hudson arrived for a massage. According to the report, while Hudson was getting massaged, he asked the 44-year-old female masseuse to perform a sexual act, and when the woman told him that they don't provide sexual services, Hudson insisted by showing her a badge and telling her he was an FBI agent.

Police say the victim them refunded Hudson's money, and the two got into an argument, during which Hudson pushed her into a wall and wouldn't let her leave. At one point, another female employee came into the room, and was apparently thrown to the ground, and physically restrained by Hudson. Police say the two women were eventually allowed to leave the room, and quickly fled from the building and drove off. Hudson then reportedly left the business, and followed the women's vehicle in his own.

Authorities say the woman called a friend, who then contacted Sussex County Emergency Operations Center (9-1-1) to report the incident. According to the report, because of the women's language barrier, the friend was able to translate the information to responding Troopers who found them at the Wawa near Dartmouth Drive near Lewes. Police caught up with Hudson in the parking lot of the Midway Outlet Shopping Center, and took him into custody.

Hudson was reportedly found to be in possession of a police badge and two sets of handcuffs, one of which was left behind at the spa. He was charged with 2nd degree kidnapping, criminal impersonation of a police officer, 2nd degree imprisonment, 3rd degree assault, 3rd degree criminal solicitation, offensive touching, and criminal mischief. Hudson was later released on $23,200 bond, and ordered to have no contact with the business or the victims.
