That was an unhappy ending. You should contact the police if you believe you were sexually assaulted. However, be aware that you will have to tell this story and make it public knowledge.
You have a potential claim for sexual assault, but would need to know more details about the incident. Moreover, the question of damages would be an issue. Did you need to have psychological counseling after the incident, exactly what type of damage did you experience, other than the initial shock and offense?
You have sustained a technical battery. And an embarrassing, perhaps horrifying one as well.
You should obtain needed psychological care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statement to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. I suggest you speak with the attorney about filing a criminal battery complaint against the masseuse.
