Four massage parlors in Bridgeport closedPosted: Updated:
The Bridgeport Police Department has shut down four massage parlors after investigators learned that the businesses reopened without the proper paperwork.
Officers inspected the 10 parlors closed in December because their owners did not have state licenses. According to police, it was determined that four parlors reopened without the proper documents.
Police said they also believe that the parlors are "fronts for prostitution."
The businesses closed again were Chate'au on Fairfield Avenue, Silver Spa on Fairfield Avenue, Oriental Health Spa on Main Street and Kay's Hong Kong on North Avenue.
Police also arrested Kisook Kimm, 46, of New Jersey; Aesu Lee-Mundy, 51, of Kentucky; Misung Lee, 59, of New Jersey; Young Stone, 52, of New York; Chang Anderson, 67, of New York; Kumyop Dunford-Harris, 63, of Bridgeport; and Chun Lee Hwang, 49, of Bridgeport.
All the suspects are being held on a $1,000 bond.
The police, health and fire departments are continuing to investigate the problem.
