Woman arrested for allegedly running a spa prostitution ring

Suffolk County prosecutors say they've arrested a Queens woman, who they say was running a prostitution ring from a spa in Hicksville.

The D.A. says the woman forced at least three Korean women that applied to a nail salon help wanted ad into prostitution.

Surveillance pictures show the women were picked up in Queens and driven to an Asian Body Work store in Huntington and a massage parlor in Hicksville.

The unidentified madame was arrested for sex trafficking and promoting prostitution.

Suffolk DA's office will be holding a press conference with more information about the prosecution ring on Tuesday morning. They'll be showing the items seized at the alleged madame's Flushing house and at the massage parlors.
