WeHo chiropractor accused of sexually battering woman; more victims sought

Authorities are looking for additional victims after a West Hollywood chiropractor was arrested on suspicion of sexually battering a woman at his office.

The incident occurred around 4 p.m. July 14 at David Mottahedeh’s office, Golden Hands Chiro at 8961 Sunset Blvd., according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Authorities did not elaborate on the allegations, but Mottahedeh, 58, was arrested on Aug. 24.

They released two images of Mottahedeh, one from 2013 and one from this year, in their efforts to identify additional victims.
