Wilmington, DE-The Delaware State Police have arrested a massage parlor employee for prostitution following a six week long investigation.
The investigation began in January of 2012 after the Delaware State Police began receiving complaints from citizens in reference to illegal sexual acts being committed by employees of the Hui Fa Healthy Inc. Massage Parlor located in the 200 block of N. Maryland Avenue in Wilmington. As a result of the complaints a State Trooper acting in an undercover capacity, entered the massage parlor on February 22, posing as a customer. While the officer was receiving a massage from a female employee, she attempted to perform a sexual act on him which he refused. The officer was however able to make an agreement with the employee, later identified as Shuhua Mao, that she would have sex with him in exchange for money at a future appointment.
On Tuesday, March 6, members of the New Castle County Governor’s Task Force executed a search warrant of the massage parlor and were able to take Shuhua Mao into custody without incident. Mao was charged with one count of prostitution. She was then arraigned at JP Court 11 and released on $500.00 unsecured bail.
This investigation is continuing.
Released Wednesday, March 07, 2012 at 3:25 p.m.
