A Las Vegas chiropractor is accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl at a residence last week, records show.

Las Vegas police arrested Peter-Mario Balle, 48, on Monday. He faces multiple felony counts of lewdness and sexual assault of a child under the age of 14.

According to his arrest report, the girl told police that Balle gave her half a prescription painkiller, then gave her a massage before assaulting her. The incident occurred in late November.

Balle has been licensed in Nevada as a chiropractor since 2000, records show. His license is set to expire at the end of next year.
