Resume

Lewes, DE- The Delaware State Police have arrested three women as part of an investigation into prostitution occurring at massage parlors in the Lewes and Rehoboth, Delaware areas.

 

The Delaware State Police Sussex County Drug Unit, along with the Sussex County Governor’s Task Force, and Homeland Security Investigations, began an investigation in October of 2011 into the Accupressure Massage located in the 17000 block of Coastal Highway, Lewes, DE, and the Rainbow New Spa, located in the 37000 block of Rehoboth Avenue Extended, Rehoboth, DE after receiving information that the employees of these massage parlors were promising customers sexual favors in exchange for money.

 

On Friday, November 18, investigators, with the assistance of the Department of Professional Regulations, executed search warrants at the Accupressure Massage and the Rainbow New Spa. During the searches of the massage parlors, investigators were able to gather evidence linking three employees to prostitution. As a result Hui Wu, 54, and Hsiu Jung Yu, 57, who are both employees of the Rainbow New Spa, and Feng Ying Liu, 52, who is an employee of the Accupressure Massage, were all arrested and charged with the above list of crimes.
