UNH police charge massage therapist

DURHAM — The University of New Hampshire Police Department arrested David Blair, 54, of Strafford, on a misdemeanor charge of sexual assault after a female student reported he fondled her during a massage Saturday. Blair was working as a massage therapist at UNH Health Services at the time; he is no longer employed by the university and has been banned from the campus.

Blair was arrested the evening of Feb. 27. He was released on $2,500 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in Dover Circuit Court March 22, 2012. A background check was conducted when Blair was hired in October 2010 and no discrepancies were found.

&#';Health Services' staff was devastated to learn of the allegation,&#'; said Kevin Charles, executive director of UNH Health Services. &#';The health and safety of all of our clients is the absolute number one priority and we continue to work closely with police to include a review of all policies and procedures.&#';

Staff members are working to notify all of Blair's clients of the arrest and have notified the state Department of Health and Human Services Bureau of Licensing and Certification.
