NORWALK, Conn. – A Norwalk spa police have raided multiple times during prostitution investigations has been shut down by the city, according to The Hour.
Two employees of Nirvana, a massage parlor in the Blackstone Plaza shopping center at 181 Main St., were arrested Thursday and charged with promoting and permitting prostitution, The Hour reported.
They were identified as Flushing, Queens residents Guishun Li and Lan Li, both 49, The Hour story said.
The spa, which had been put on probation for allegedly employing unlicensed masseuses, was closed Thursday by the city’s Health Department, pending a hearing, police told The Hour.
Last February, the department’s Special Services Division charged two other spa employees – Ying Ji Jin, 50, and Chunyue Shen, 45, both of Flushing – with prostitution and permitting and promoting prostitution, according to a Daily Voice report.
