Prostitution Arrest

Riverside, Ca-  On Wednesday August 20, 2003 the Riverside Police Department Vice Unit conducted a business inspection of the Van Buren Health Center, located at 5634 Van Buren in the City of Riverside. The business was operating as a “massage parlor” without the proper city permits for the business or it’s employees.

As part of the vice unit’s regular practice an under cover officer was sent into the business to see if he could receive a massage in violation of the Riverside Municipal Code. The officer did receive a massage and was solicited by the listed business owner, Xiaomin “Lucy” Luo 41 of Arcadia, CA to engage in prostitution. Additional under cover officers then entered the business and arrested Luo for Solicitation of Prostitution. A second employee was also detained but was later released at the Riverside Police Department. Luo was issued a citation for PC 647(b), Solicitation of Prostitution and released.
