A Post Road massage parlor was busted by Darien and state police who claim the parlor was providing sex acts in exchange for money. Police launched an investigation into Sunrise Health Therapeutic Massage, at 800 Post Rd., unit 3C, four months ago, and an undercover police informant helped gather information that led to the arrest of three New York residents on numerous prostitution charges.
The shop’s owner, Fu Xu, 49, of Elmhurst, was charged with promoting prostitution, permitting prostitution and three counts of employing unlicensed massage therapists. Fenjiao Gao, a 43 year woman from Flushing, was charged with interfering with a police officer and practicing massage without a licencse. Xiuguin Lu, a 45 year old woman also from Flushing, was charged with two counts of prostitution and three counts of practicing massage without a license.
The Darien Police Department’s Patrol Division got information that patrons of Sunrise Health were being offered sex acts in exchange for money. This information launched the investigation by Darien Police which used undercover informants, Connecticut State Police-Statewide Organized Crime Investigation Task Force and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The arrests led to the seizure of $4,500 in cash which was in the establishment as well as a vehicle which was used to transport the female employees, police said.
Lu was held on a $20,000 bond and taken to Stamford Superior Court on Friday, Nov. 30. Her next court appearance is on Dec. 10. Gao was held on a $1,000 bond and taken to Stamford Court Nov. 30. Her next court appearance is also Dec. 10.
Xu was held on a $5,000 bond and his next court appearance is also Dec. 10.
