Posted: Updated:

Two women are facing prostitution charges after an undercover massage parlor bust in Pearl River.

Forty-two-year-old Ming Shu Yuan and 41-year-old Yeun Hwa Baik, both of Queens, are accused of giving massages without a license and fondling male customers. Undercover officers say they busted the pair at the Asian Therapy Center, also known as Asian Physical Therapy, in the act.

It isn?t the first time the business has been busted. It was raided for prostitution last October. Two other women were arrested at that time.

Yuan and Baik are charged with prostitution, sex abuse and unauthorized practice of a business. Each was released on $1,000 bail.
