Union Township (Union)

Police conducting a compliance check at Birchwood Spa ultimately ended in arrests after the establishment continued promoting prostitution at a spa.

The Union Police Department, following prostitution arrests in September 2017, began to monitor the location and discovered that they had returned to business and appeared to have continued its practices.

Police said on April 18th undercover detectives went to the business in an undercover capacity to further investigate. After being escorted into a private room, the massage girl explained the pricing for additional services that they offer—these services were of a sexual nature.

Police said detectives declined her offer and left the spa a short time later.

Detectives and Street Crimes Unit officers returned to the business and ultimately detained everyone there.

Authorities said among those arrested was Ronald (aka Michael) Stone, 75, of West New York, New Jersey. Police arrested and charged him with promoting prostitution.

The woman who solicited the undercover officer was also arrested and was identified as Masturakhon Abduvalieva, age 41, from Brooklyn, NY.

Three other woman in the spa were also arrested for a variety of warrants. All of them were processed and released from headquarters.

Officials said Mr. Stone and Ms. Abduvalieva were given court dates and will appear in court at a future date.
