Two women face prostitution charges in Union County

LEWISBURG — Two women are facing prostitution charges after being caught in a state police sting last week at a Kelly Township spa with a history of violating this law.

Hyang Wood, 65, and Lee Young Bun, 48, both of Flushing, N.Y., were arraigned Aug. 12 by District Judge John Reed on charges of prostitution and conspiracy, both misdemeanors.

According to the affidavit filed in Union County, an undercover state police trooper entered the Four Seasons Spa near Lewisburg at about 2:15 p.m. Aug. 12 and was greeted by Wood. She led him to a room and left.

Bun entered the room later and massaged the trooper, then allegedly asked if he wanted her to perform sexual acts on him. The trooper told her he would need more money and began to dress, the affidavit stated.

Bun told the trooper to stay, and she left the room, according to the affidavit. The trooper then called another trooper to get a search warrant for the spa.

Bun returned to the room with Wood, who asked the trooper why he was causing problems. He said he needed to leave to get more money, and Wood said that Bun would wait for him in the room, the affidavit stated.

As the trooper continued dressing, the other trooper rang the door bell and announced “state police.” Wood and Bun then were arrested.

The women were released on $15,000 bail each and have preliminary hearings scheduled before District Judge Leo S. Armbruster on Sept. 26 in Lewisburg.

A phone call Wednesday to the Four Seasons Spa was answered by a woman who said she was there to clean. She would not give her name and said she was the only person there and was leaving as soon as she was done.

“I don’t know who called me because I don’t know his name,” the woman said. “I drove here from New York because they told me I had to come and clean.”

The woman said she has no idea who owns or operates the spa and said it was closed for the week but would reopen Monday.

When questioned about the arrests, the woman asked when the police arrived and at what time.

“No one told me about the police,” she said. “I don’t know anything about that. All I was told to do was clean.”

In May 2012, state police broke up an alleged prostitution ring at the Four Seasons Spa, which they closed down for similar offenses nearly two years earlier.
