Police raid three massage parlours linked to human trafficking

MONTREAL – Three erotic massage parlours in Montreal were raided Thursday night.

The RCMP arrested three owners of Centre Maxi Sante on Hymus in Dorval, Spa Angel in Verdun, and Massage du Centre in Pointe St-Charles.

Police say the parlours were fronts for human trafficking and prostitution.

Li Wang, 53, Yi Zhang, 38, and Dong Bai, 39 were charged for running a bawdy house and procurement. They’re expected to appear in court on Friday.

A client was also arrested on site and is expected in court in February.

The raid comes nearly a month after Marius Trifu Miclescu and six others were charged for human trafficking and forcing Romanian women to work as sex slaves in erotic massage parlours
