Las Vegas, NV – Las Vegas Metropolitan Police arrested a woman, Yanqing Zhu, at a massage business named “Lily A Reflexology” on Tropicana Avenue and Jones Boulevard. The business is under investigation for potential sex trafficking activity.

Key Points:

  • The business shares the same name as one previously investigated by 8 News Now for alleged sex trafficking.
  • Zhu allegedly offered sexual services to an undercover officer posing as a customer.
  • The business reportedly lacks a valid county license for massage therapy services.
  • This arrest follows a similar investigation in 2022 at the same location, where police suspected illegal brothel activity.
  • Zhu is charged with prostitution, operating as an unlicensed massage therapist, and resisting arrest.

Prior Investigation at the Same Location:

  • In 2022, authorities investigated the same business under then-owner Wei Geng, suspecting it functioned as an illegal brothel disguised as a massage parlor.
  • Prosecutors dropped charges against Geng in 2023, although he received a Marcum notice indicating a possible future indictment.

Current Investigation and Charges:

  • Police arrested Zhu after she allegedly offered sexual acts to an undercover officer during a massage appointment.
  • She has been released without bail and awaits her next court hearing on April 29th.
