GENEVA, IL — A West Chicago man working as a massage therapist at a Geneva spa is accused of sexually assaulting a client, according to a joint news release from Geneva police and the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Robert C. Siletzky, 41, was charged with one count of criminal sexual assault and six counts of criminal sexual abuse. The assault took place at the Geneva Hand & Stone Massage and Spa, located at 1416 S. Randall Road.
The charges come two years after officials say he sexually assaulted a client he was scheduled to massage on Sept. 11, 2021. Siletzky was fired five days later, on Sept. 16, and is not permitted back to the spa, according to a Hands & Stone Massage spokesperson.
Each Hand & Stone spa is independently owned and operated, and the Geneva owner “has fully cooperated with authorities” since the incident occurred, officials said.

“Hand & Stone has a zero-tolerance policy related to inappropriate behavior at all locations,” a company spokesperson told Patch in an email. “Franchisees adhere to a detailed spa safety program designed to prioritize the safety of its guests and service providers. All franchise locations are trained on strict hiring and screening tools, therapist training, and prevention, reporting and investigation policies. In this instance, the franchise owner implemented all of the spa safety policies and procedures.”
Siletzky, of the 500 block of Carriage Drive, was released from custody after posting the necessary $4,000 bond, 10 percent of the $40,000 bail set by Judge Julia Yetter.
The case remains under investigation. Officials are asking anyone with information about Siletzky to call the Geneva Police Department Investigations Division at 630-232-4736.
