Prostitution Sting at Kenilworth Acupuncture Center Leads to Arrest of NY Woman

Kenilworth New York

An undercover prostitution sting targeting an acupuncture center led to the arrest of a New York woman, police announced this morning.

According to police, on Dec. 18th, Detectives from the Kenilworth Police Department initiated a takedown of K&W Wellness Center at 725 Federal Avenue in Kenilworth after numerous reports that prostitution was taking place at that location.

An investigation ensued following the numerous anonymous complaints of practices at K&W Wellness Center which was being advertised as an acupuncture treatment center.  

As a result of the investigation, detectives arrested Zhang Jihong, 48, of Flushing NY, for soliciting prostitution after offering sexual gratification to an undercover detective in exchange for money.  

Police served Jihong a criminal complaint for soliciting prostitution and released from police custody.  

A court appearance for Jihong has been scheduled for January 23rd in the Kenilworth Municipal Court.
