O'FALLON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

An employee of an O'Fallon, Missouri massage parlor was was charged Tuesday following an attempt to masturbate an undercover detective, charging documents said.

Yaoqin Zhu is charged with prostitution and second degree sexual abuse, both misdemeanors, police said, following an undercover sting at the massage parlor.

A detective from the O’Fallon police department visited a VIP Massage on October 20, 2017 as part of a sting operation. The detective and the Special Investigations Unit were prompted to investigate the business after several locals complained about prostitution at the parlor.

Before entering, the undercover detective was fitted with an audio monitoring device for safety. The arrest and surveillance teams were prepared to enter the business to make the arrest upon hearing a “code word” spoken by the detective, a probable cause statement read. 

Zhu commenced the massage without draping a cloth over the detective, court documents said. Upon completion of massaging the detective’s back, buttock and legs, she instructed the detective to turn over. Zhu then began massaging the detective’s upper chest area, before proceeding to the groin area. Zhu then, “grabbed the detective’s penis for the purpose of masturbation.”

The detective “immediately stopped” the act, and Zhu was arrested and interviewed, according to the probable cause statement.

Zhu stated that she did what she did because she found the undercover detective handsome.
