June 18, 2019 12:41 PM

A former Twin Cities figure skating coach is facing new allegations of inappropriate behavior just days before his criminal trial for alleged sexual abuse of a skater he coached is scheduled to start.

Eden Prairie police arrested Thomas Incantalupo, 48, in January 2018. Prosecutors charged him with nine counts of criminal sexual conduct. His jury trial is scheduled to begin June 17.

But new court documents reveal a different skater has also accused Incantalupo of inappropriate behavior. The woman, who is not identified in the court filing, said the incidents began when she was coached by him as a teenager.

Prosecutors filed a document that explains they plan to introduce evidence that shows "prior bad acts" on the part of the defendant.

In the filing, the former skater described multiple incidents where Incantalupo made her feel uncomfortable, including when the defendant would "stick his tongue in (her) ear as she tried to turn her face."

She reported this happened almost daily, according to the documents.

The skater also described incidents where Incantalupo would give her massages, "reaching his hand near her groin."

On one occasion, according to the filing, she said he asked her to disrobe and straddled her.

His behavior escalated, according to the skater's account, when he tried to kiss her multiple times. The woman said after that incident, she stopped skating for the defendant.

Requests for comment sent to Incantalupo's attorney went unanswered.
