KAYSVILLE — A Kaysville chiropractor has been arrested and accused of touching two women clients inappropriately.

Kenneth Pierce, 55, was booked into the Davis County Jail Saturday for investigation of two counts of object rape.

On Saturday, a woman called police shortly after leaving her appointment at Right Now! Chiropractic, 150 N. Main in Kaysville. The woman said Pierce touched her genitals while giving her a massage and that she "froze," according to a police booking affidavit.

"She stated that Kenneth had told her this was an after-hours appointment for a massage," the affidavit states. "When (the woman) went in for her appointment, she stated that Kenneth locked the door behind her and that no one else was there. (She) was so terrified that she prayed that she would make it out of there. She was worried that she did not want to make him mad."

The woman also saw what she said appeared to be a GoPro camera mounted to a light fixture, the affidavit states, and was concerned that she was being recorded.

Police noted in the affidavit that they had received a similar complaint against Pierce in May "in which the modus operandi was very similar." In that case, a woman said she too was told by Pierce to come in for an after-hours massage, during which he locked the door behind him and inappropriately touched her, the affidavit alleges. That case was still being investigated Monday.

Police questioned Pierce on Saturday about his "methods and techniques" and about his appointment with the woman that day. He claimed the woman wanted to be touched in those areas, according to the affidavit.

"When I asked for further details, he requested an attorney," police noted in the arrest report. "Kenneth is currently a practicing doctor in chiropractic and massage care, and he is a threat to society, as he may continue to victimize patients if released."
