A massage parlor employee in Crest Hill has been charged with prostitution, court records show.
On Wednesday, a misdemeanor charge of prostitution was filed against Xiaofei Wang, 57, of the 3000 block of South Normal Avenue in Chicago.
Crest Hill Police Chief Ed Clark said his department received complaints about acts of prostitution at Rose Massage, 2400 Caton Farm Road.
He said he requested help from the Will County Cooperative Police Assistance Team to conduct an undercover investigation.
Will County CPAT agents identified Wang as the offender, Clark said. During a massage, she would offer to perform sexual acts in exchange for money, he said.
Wang was arrested, taken to the Crest Hill Police Department for booking and released from custody after she posted bond, he said.
The Will County CPAT previously was involved in the investigation of Baoxia Li, 55, of Chicago, who worked for I Spa, 2218 Plainfield Road, Crest Hill. Li pleaded guilty to prostitution after propositioning a man and an undercover police officer.
A man had reported to Crest Hill police that he was propositioned by one of the employees of I Spa when he was there for a massage, police said.
The team also was involved in an investigation that led to the arrest of massage store employees Mickey Ye, 35, and Wanting Yu, 44, both of Chicago. Both were convicted of battery.
The two women worked at the former 7 Day Spa at 2430 Plainfield Road. The business was shut down after their arrests.
