A woman working at a Fort Myers massage parlor was arrested and charged with procurement for prostitution after attempting to perform a sexual act on an undercover deputy.

Xiaojun Wu, 44, was working at New Asian Massage.

Deputies said an ad was posted on the website Backpage.com, which they say is an advertising site to solicit sexual acts for money.

The ad said "massage and magic touch" and had several photos of Asian women in revealing clothing.

Jeff Buethe, the owner of Complete Nutrition next door, watched the arrest unfold and caught it on video.

"They bring the one little Asian lady out handcuffed, put her in the cop car, and took her away," Buethe said.

He said this isn't the first time New Asian Massage was busted for this kind of behavior.

The report said Wu took the undercover officer into a room and started massaging him, then asked if he wanted more and pointed toward his genitals.

Once Wu took things further, deputies moved in and arrested her.

"Everyone jokes around about that kind of stuff, like 'Oh, happy ending' but to think that it actually happened, that's a little alarming and weird and kind of gross," Dillon Martino said.

When Four in Your Corner's Lisa Greenberg went into New Asian Massage to ask someone about the arrest, the only woman inside didn't speak English.

Buethe said he's noticed some unusual activity at the spa.

"The back door has been open. They're not open regular hours, if you know what I mean. They're open sign is on all the time, so it's obviously not normal," he said.

He hopes what happened at New Asian Massage won't affect his business next door.

"It is illegal and it is very wrong. That shouldn't be happening," Alexia Giori said.

This is the third massage parlor bust in eight days in Lee County. The other two were in Bonita Springs, resulting in four arrests.
