Nassau County police officers arrested a West Hempstead spa worker for prostitution Tuesday, bringing the arrest total to 11 for 2013.
According to detectives, an undercover operation determined that 52-year-old Peili Zheng, of Flushing, practiced massage therapy without a license while working at Shunyuan Spa, 357 Hempstead Turnpike, Suite 203.
Police say Zheng also offered to engage in a sexual act for an undisclosed amount of money.
Zheng is charged with unauthorized practice of a crime and prostitution. She will be arraigned on Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
Tuesday's arrest marks the second trip police have made to Shunyuan this year. Two employees were arrested in January for unlicensed operation, one of whom was also charged with prostitution.
Two Flushing women were also arrested for prostitution last Wednesday at Lucy Day Spa, just down the road from Shunyuan at 300 Hempstead Turnpike.
