(Bridgeport, CT – Jan. 17, 2014) – Police arrested three women Wednesday night in a sting operation at an illegal massage parlor.
Members of the police Tactical Narcotics Team conducted an undercover operation at the American Asian Modeling Studio at 3853 Main St.
The officers, dressed in civilian clothes, entered the location at about 10 p.m. and spoke to a woman through a barred door. They received a quoted price for both massage and sexual services, but were told to come back because the woman working that night was busy with another client.
The officers returned some time later and gained entry. Back up officers arrived and arrested three women.
Jo Hall Kum, 53, and Yongyul Kim, 75, were charged with promoting prostitution and for failing to have a state massage establishment license.
Chuyoung Jang, 46, was charged with prostitution and with state licensing violations.
Their bonds were set at $2,500 each.
