Pico Union massage parlour busted for prostitution after 2 employees rub undercover cops the wrong way reports the Ocean Park Gazette.
A police raid on a massage parlor in the Pico Neighborhood resulted in two employees being charged with prostitution. Santa Monica undercover officers visited the Tokyo Health Studio, 817 Pico Blvd., on Jan. 21 to investigate complaints of profligate behavior at the site. A little after 6:30 p.m., a male undercover officer visited the establishment and asked for a massage.

After the more traditional physical therapy was completed, he was taken to a back room where the masseuse displayed her genitals and suggested sex in exchange for additional money.
