Metro Police Raid 4 Massage Parlors In Prostitution Case

CREATED Feb 11, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Metro Nashville Police officers raided four massage parlors in a prostitution case on Monday afternoon.

Those raided included Golden Massage at 2109 Abbott Martin Road in Green Hills; Daily Massage on N. Gallatin Pike; ABC Massage on Franklin Pike; and Acupressure Treatment Center on 4th Avenue South.

The locations were raided at 1:30 p.m. after police received numerous tips that the businesses were fronts for prostitution rings. 

"We won't stop with these four. Obviously if we receive information regarding any of these businesses across the county, you know, it will be a relentless pursuit in this same type of manner," said Mike Alexander with Metro Police.

Officials with the Metro Nashville Police charged three women with felony charges of promoting prostitution, and seven others with prostitution.

Detectives are continuing to investigate whether the seven women charged with prostitution, who are of Chinese descent, were being trafficked to work in massage businesses.

Officers also seized records from the businesses.

There's a new state law called "trafficking for a commercial sex act" and that law was possibly broken in this case.
