MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities say a physical therapist in Mesa is in custody after being accused of sexually abusing two patients.

Mesa police announced Monday that detectives from their Special Victims Unit arrested 60-year-old David Fairbourn .
 
Police say they received reports last Tuesday from two women who alleged inappropriate touching during a physical therapy session performed by Fairbourn at his office near Baseline and Greenfield Roads.
