Teen buddies seeking massage for surfing injuries wind up in prostitution bust April 2, 2014

Two teen tourists visiting an Osceola massage parlor last week found themselves in the midst of a prostitution bust, a dissatisfied client and angry practitioners of the ancient art of relaxation.

The 16-year-old buddies arrived at the Jasmine Massage Parlor on West U.S. Highway 192 shortly before 11 p.m. March 26 when undercover vice squad members also showed up, according to sheriff’s office arrest records.

“When I entered, the location was very busy and I was told to wait and would be very happy if I did,” the unidentified detective wrote. “During my time in the lobby area I overheard a young voice saying, “Stop! I don’t like that.”

Moment later, a young male quickly exited a door from the back of the massage parlor, closely followed by another young male.


“A female was running after them. She was upset and was yelling at the two males,” the report stated, identifying the woman as Lijun Shi, 51, formerly of China.

The detective described the teens as looking nervous when each gave her more money.

As the boys bolted, a client came out of another room, adjusting his clothing and yelling, “That was the worst” sex act ever and he had suffered an injury, the report stated.

Upon seeing the undercover waiting for a massage, the upset customer yelled a profanity and advised, “Go somewhere else.”

All of this happened as Shi and the partially clothed owner, Zhu Fang Liu, 54, formerly of China, stood in the lobby yelling. Meanwhile, the detective was sending a message to vice-squad members waiting outside to detain the teens, records stated.

“Liu then invited me into a room and directed me to remove my clothing,” the detective wrote about paying $70 for his massage and stating he was offered sexual pleasure for a good tip. “I told her I would do that but would come back later…I told the members what took place and we would move in after I was briefed on the young males.”

One of the teens told detectives the massage therapist asked him if he was attending school while talking sexy and grabbing at him. “He said he told her he did not like that” which was why he left the room in hurry followed by his friend, the report stated.

“He was offended and nervous that she grabbed him so he departed as well,” the detective wrote. “The boys told me that they have morals based on religion and what Shi and Liu did outraged them. This type of activity with young males has the potential to corrupt them.”

Shi was booked into the county jail in lieu of $4,000 bail on charges of living off the earnings of prostitution, assignation to commit prostitution and disorderly conduct.

Liu was booked into the jail in lieu of $2,000 bail on charges of living off the earnings of prostitution and two counts of keeping a house of ill fame.

The Orlando Sentinel is not identifying the two minors, who were out-of-state tourists and were not charged. They were released to their parents.

“They were dropped off by older family members. They claimed the day before they had done some sort of surfing exercise that injured their backs,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Twis Lizasuain said today. “They went to get a legitimate massage is what they told us. They didn’t realize that establishment offered additional services.”

The arrests were two of five made March 26 by the vice squad, which routinely focuses on a stretch of low-cost motels, restaurants and places of entertainment on West U.S. Highway 192 known as “The Strip.”

The “lewd and lascivious” act landed Dwight Eddington Jr, of Sanford, in jail for indecent exposure.

The incident occurred at the Bealls near the Seminole Towne Center in Sanford.
