Greensburg chiropractor accused of harassing 2 women at gym

November 15, 2018

Westmoreland County detectives on Friday accused a Greensburg chiropractor and fitness center operator of inappropriately touching one female client and harassing another woman.

Moses M. Jevicky, 36, of Greensburg, is charged with one count of indecent assault and four counts of harassment.

The alleged incidents occurred Aug. 14 and were reported to county detectives last month, according to court documents filed by Detective Nick Caesar.

Jevicky, a licensed chiropractor, operates Virtus Chiropractic clinic that is attached to his fitness center, Virtus Institute, at 643 North Main St. Reached at his gym, Jevicky declined comment and referred inquiries to Greensburg attorney Richard Galloway. Galloway said he believes the complaints are “unfounded.”

“The fact of the matter is that I think we have pretty solid evidence that he’s not guilty of anything. I’m not being coy, but at this time I can’t say what that evidence is,” Galloway said. “I think the evidence will show he’s innocent of any wrongdoing.”

One woman alleges that during a chiropractic visit, she was positioned face up on the adjustment table when Jevicky “began kissing her ear and neck” before he “grabbed and squeezed her buttocks,” Caesar reported.

“The victim stated that after the first assault, Jevicky then fell on top of her in the exam room and he once again kissed her, this time on the right side of her neck,” Caeser wrote.

Later that evening, the victim and Jevicky had a text message conversation where he allegedly apologized.

“I’m really sorry. I know I’m too flirty and some personalities don’t go with mine,” Caeser reported Jevicky wrote the victim.

The other woman alleges that she was exercising at the fitness center when she requested chiropractic care. During the procedure, where she was laying face down on the table, the victim told Caesar that “Jevicky pulled and snapped her bra.”

“Moses Jevicky then said to the victim, ‘It must be hard for your boyfriend to get this off,’ ” Caesar reported in the criminal complaint.

In an interview, Caesar said Jevicky told him “I’m kind of a flirty guy.”

He also admitted kissing one of the victims “on top of her head,” Caesar reported.

Jevicky has not been arraigned and a preliminary hearing date has not been scheduled.
