The Naples Police Department says it received complaints from women who said they had been beaten while receiving cosmetic medical treatments at the Pura Vida Medical Spa in Naples.

The women identified Salata as the shooter, Naples police said.

One woman told police she was sedated with nitrous oxide to help with sedation and pain from a procedure. She claimed that she found Salata having sex with her while the nitrous oxide wore off.

Police said the woman felt “shocked” and contacted police. They said she underwent a sexual assault exam that was sent to a forensic lab for further investigation.

Another woman alleged a similar experience while under sedation at Pura Vida Medical Spa with Salata, police said. Detectives collected evidence of the sexual assault, which they also sent to a forensics lab for comparison and to support Salata’s prosecution, police said.

Salata was located at the Pura Vida Clinic on Monday night and arrested. Detectives also issued a search warrant at the practice to locate any additional evidence.

Salata made his first court appearance Tuesday afternoon. His defense attorney could not be reached for comment Thursday.
