Suffolk Police raided and busted a Huntington Massage Parlor operating as a front for an illegal Chinese prostitution and sex trafficking ring.
At around 4PM last Friday, detectives from the Second Precinct raided the W Foot Spa located on New York Avenue in Huntington.
Two women were arrested during the raid. Guimin Zhang, age 54, of Flushing, Queens, was arrested and charged with two counts of prostitution.
Also arrested was Jiang Wei, age 45, also of Flushing, Queens, who was arrested and charged with two counts of unauthorized practice of a profession (a class E felony under the New York State Education Law) and two counts of prostitution, according to police.
The raid followed extensive complaints from neighborhood residents and nearby businesses that the W Foot Spa was operating as a prostitution and sex trafficking front, according to police.
Zhang and Wei are scheduled to be arraigned on July 14 at First District Court in Central Islip.
