LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)– An Elizabethtown chiropractic specialist lags bars after police say he raped and sexually abused 2 juvenile ladies during separate appointments at his workplace.

According to the Elizabethtown Police Department, Matthew Colasanti runs Colasanti Chiropractic, a practice in the 2000 block of Ring Road, just south of Tunnel Hill Road, in Elizabethtown.

On the early morning of Wednesday, Nov. 25, cops state Colasanti brought a juvenile to his workplace for a back modification. The teen informed police that while she was pushing the table face-down, Colasanti started fondling her, then raped her.

The teen says she jumped off the table and encountered the bathroom, waiting there for another adult staff member to show up so she could leave.

Colasanti is charged with first-degree rape in connection with that case.

Another teenage girl told police she was sexually abused on numerous celebrations while she was a patient in Colasanti's workplace. According to an arrest report, these occurrences happened from April to June.

Police say Colasanti would fondle the 16-year-old while she was being changed for pain in the back. She stated this happened both outside and inside her clothing, and Colasanti would often remark on “how tight and tense she was.”

According to the arrest report, the victim informed officers that this occurred, “almost every time she was adjusted by him, which was once a week for 3 months.” She said this would not happen when she was brought to the office by a grownup.

Colasanti, 32, is charged with first-degree sexual abuse in connection with this case. He is currently being held in the Hardin County Detention Center.

“This suspect remained in a position of trust and also a position of power over these very vulnerable juvenile victims who trusted him,” stated Officer John Thomas, a spokesperson for the Elizabethtown Police Department. “He took advantage of their vulnerability to do something that will most likely leave scars for the rest of their lives. We certainly hope that they will be able to recuperate, and we wish them all the very best because.”

Thomas states officers are unaware of any additional victims, however anybody with any additional information is asked to call the department at 270-765-4125.

“We can't make any presumptions about the possibility of whether or not there are other victims, however the reality is it is possible,” said Thomas. “We would highly urge any victims that may be out there, please stepped forward. We will treat you with the exact same self-respect and respect that we afforded the two that have stepped forward so far.”

According to online records, Colasanti has a tidy chiropractic specialist license with the Commonwealth of Kentucky and has actually been certified given that 2014.
