Two women charged in Lindenhurst massage parlor sting

From all appearances, it was a barbershop. But, police said, it functioned as a massage parlor.

On Thursday night, Suffolk County police executed a search warrant at the Kai Kai Barber Shop on Sunrise Highway in Lindenhurst and arrested two women.

Kun Zhou, 47, whose address is unknown, was charged with two counts of prostitution, and the second, Shagfeng Jiang, 40, of 41-17 Main St., Flushing, was charged with second-degree criminal nuisance, police said.

Police said they seized $560 in cash, massage tables, a washing machine, a towel warmer, a steam dryer, towels and assorted lotions.

"The business operated under the appearance of a barbershop and massage therapy storefront," police said, "but inside, employees would agree to perform a sexual act for a fee."

The two women were scheduled for arraignment Friday in First District Court in Central Islip, police said.
