A Hackensack massage parlor was closed down and two employees from Queens arrested after a police detective was propositioned, authorities said Tuesday.
Acting on an anonymous complaint, a detective entered the Healing Hand Spa on Main Street around noon Friday, posing as a customer.
The hostess, Shen Qin, 50, of Flushing, took the detective to the masseuse, Huaihui Li, 41, of Bayside, who “offered to perform sexual acts for money, Detective Capt. Darrin DeWitt.
Several city officers then entered and arrested both women, he said.
The Hackensack Health Department closed the store for violating license provisions, the captain said.
