You can get a massage from SMU's Dedman Center for Lifetime Sports, but it's not free and it won't be given by Edwin Kim.

Kim, 24, was arrested by SMU police and charged with criminal trespass after he was found wandering the halls of the Morrison-McGinnis residence hall, posing as an SMU student and offering free massages. One woman who took him up on the offer reported that he had touched her inappropriately during the session, according to CBS 11.

Kim was reportedly carrying flyers offering free massages from the Dedman Center, where he claimed to work. He was also carrying unspecified articles of woman's clothing, and had more women's clothing in his car, because nothing says "let me work that knot out" like a Corolla full of creepy.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
