Orland Park police said Monday that a village massage parlor remains closed following a prostitution arrest in late November.

Police arrested a 57-year-old masseuse employed at Q-Spa, 14490 LaGrange Road, after she allegedly offered to perform oral sex on an undercover Cook County sheriff’s police investigator on Nov. 26.

Hong Yang, of 3000 S. Wentworth Ave., Chicago, was charged with one misdemeanor count of prostitution. The business owner, Ping Zhao, 44, 4550 S. Union Ave., Chicago, was stripped of her business license and occupancy permit pending the results of a village hearing, according to police.

They said the owner was issued two ordinance violations for failing to conceal the genitals of a person in a massage establishment. Police also seized $390 in cash from the register at the time of the arrests.

Police said the investigation began after Orland Park police received an anonymous letter, informing them of prostitution at the business. Acting upon the advice of the tipster, the investigator asked if there was a “shower table” available after paying $50 for a 30-minute massage.

After disrobing and covering himself with a towel, the officer reported that Yang sprayed him with a shower head and used soap to wash his body before leading him back to a massage room, where she asked him if it was his “first time” and what he wanted, according to police.

They said that when the officer asked Yang what she was offering, Yang said she would perform oral sex for $120, and when he agreed, Yang grabbed his genitals. The officer then told Yang he had changed his mind.

After Yang finished the massage, the officer alerted police waiting outside of Yang’s prostitution offer and she was arrested.

Zhao, the business owner, was granted a continuance at her village hearing Dec. 10. Yang’s next court date is scheduled for March 19 at the Bridgeview courthouse, according to police.
