Two Queens women were charged on Friday with prostitution after one of the suspects offered to have sex with undercover police detectives in exchange for cash, Nassau police said.

The arrests occurred shortly after 2 p.m. during an undercover operation at a building on Fulton Street in Farmingdale.

Xi Zheng, 28, of Colton Street in Flushing, agreed to perform a sexual act with the detectives -- the first at 1:10 p.m. and the second at 1:45 p.m., police said.

After speaking to two witnesses, detectives later charged a second woman, Chun Hau Chen, 28, also of Colton Street in Flushing, with offering to engage in sex for an undisclosed amount of money.

Both women are charged with prostitution and practicing massage therapy without a license.

They will be arraigned on Saturday in First District Court in Hempstead.
