(ORLAND PARK) A southwest suburban massage parlor was shut down by police Wednesday because one of the therapists was allegedly offering to perform sex acts with clients, one of whom was an undercover police officer.
Orland Park police received a complaint about the HM Spa at 9955 W. 151st from a customer who said he was offered sex during a massage, a statement from police said.
“The unidentified complainant stated that he has had massages at a number of different establishments and is familiar what to expect,” police said. But when he went to HM Spa, “the attendant inappropriately touched him and offered a sex act.”
On Wednesday, an undercover officer went to the spa, and, “during the course of the massage, the massage therapist offered a sex act for a monetary price,” the statement said.
Police then entered and arrested Keying Peng, of the 1800 block of Melody Court in Chicago, for prostitution, police said. A check also showed that the 43-year-old Peng was not licensed by the state and was cited for a violation.
The manager, Man Zhang, 25, of the 1900 block of Wells in Chicago, was also cited for allowing an unlicensed therapist to work at the spa, and the business was shut down pending a village hearing, police said.
Peng and Zhang are scheduled to appear in court on the misdemeanor charges Dec. 9 in Bridgeview.
