DES PERES, MO (KTVI) – A massage business in an upscale shopping area of Des Peres, Missouri, has been shut down, and two workers arrested for prostitution.  The Rong Hua D-Stress Sauna and Massage was drawing complaints from neighbors.  That’s when an undercover cop went in. 

An officer from the St. Louis County Police Special Investigation Unit delivered the evidence.  Fox 2’s partners at Patch report the officer was able to solicit prostitution from one of the two women charged, Jufang Long, 62.  Officers entered and saw a second woman , Cuizhen Wu, 40, engaged in a sex act with another customer. 

The two women both list an address on Duxberry Way Walk in Chesterfield, a quiet street that is home to several houses valued at more than a quarter million dollars. 

In Des Peres, neighboring businesses in the strip mall on Manchester Road are not surprised.  Rich Goellner, whose business OK Vacuum and Janitor Supply is on the floor below Rong Hua D-Stress, says he wasn’t surprised people were led out in handcuffs.  The clientele, exclusively male, didn’t add up.

“You work out or something, it feels great to get a massage.  But this deal, there was no women going to the massage place, and I just found it sort of odd that you would open a massage parlor and there would be no women at all as customers.  The massage places I go to, I’m normally the minority.  Guys go there but it’s mostly women,” explained Goellner.

He says he told his landlord something was amiss, but the man responded that he had no evidence and couldn’t discriminate against the business.

“I just think it’s a shame.  You know you’ve got my wife here.  We’ve got mostly women as a clientele.  There’s women that are going to the quilting place upstairs and the nail studio, and this has to happen right where they’re all going to do their business.  I didn’t think it was real good.”

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
