BC man accused of sexually assaulting women at laser hair removal clinic formally charged

The Vancouver Police Department has arrested and charged a man who is accused of photographing and sexually assaulting woman at a laser hair removal clinic.

The charges against 50-year-old Ali Aghasardar were announced today and include one count of sexual assault and one count of voyeurism.

An investigation into the alleged actions started in 2019 after a person came forward to tell police they were sexually assaulted during laser hair removal appointments at Dermabella Clinic in Vancouver.

Police said the alleged offences happened between January and October 2019.

“During the investigation, detectives identified a second victim who had allegedly been photographed while naked and receiving treatment at the clinic,” the VPD explained.

Following the lengthy investigation, the BC Prosecution Service approved the two charges against Aghasardar.

He now has a court-imposed condition not to be alone with any patient or client without another adult present for the duration of any treatment.
