Woman claims pedicure crossed the line

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A Shreveport woman said a nail tech from Style Nails in Shreveport crossed the line during a pedicure, and that she has cell phone video to prove it.

The incident took place last Friday at the nail shop located on Youree Drive. According to Lawanda Warren, a male nail tech fondled and groped her leg while giving her a pedicure.

"The massage kind of got weird because he went up my legs, and he kept going up, and up, and then he was up under the towel and then he was just groping my thighs," Warren said.

That's when she started recording a video of the pedicure using her cell phone.

We talked to nail tech Huey Tran at Style Nails and he said he did not do anything wrong.

"I pull the towel for her, and be done," Tran said.

The video shows him just massaging Warren's legs, but not in a sexual manner, he said.

A longtime customer at the nail salon said nothing like that has ever happened to her at Style Nails.

"I always wear pants, but if a person came in with a towel or skirt then they would put a towel over their legs and that is as far as it has ever gone," said Karen Emerson, who has been a customer of Style Nails for nine years, and has never had an inappropriate incident.

The Shreveport Police Department confirmed that a police report was filed concerning the incident. The allegations are still under investigation.
