Undercover investigators have exposed a Cape Coral massage parlor accused of illegally selling sexual favors.

The Sheriff’s Office responded to a community complaint of suspicious of prostitution at Royal Spa Massage Parlor in Cape Coral. Yan Wen was arrested during their investigation.

An undercover detective entered the parlor and was directed to a room to get undressed. The woman left the room so the detective could do so. During the massage, Wen asked the detective if he wanted her to massage his genital area. The Detective said yes and as Wen attempted to move towards the detective’s genital area, he gave a pre-determined take down signal.

The Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit and other deputies assisted to make the arrest.

Four In Your Corner spoke with business owners in the plaza who say they have witnessed older men wait in line at the front and left of the store as early as 7:00 a.m.

“It’s a huge revolving door,” a business owner said. “They have a lot of regulars. Let’s just say that.”

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office lists Royal Spa Massage as Wen’s last known home address. Records show Wen was arrested for prostitution less than six months ago.

Four In Your Corner tried to speak with employees at the spa and the employee said she did not know anything about the arrest.

Wen has bonded out of jail.
