Police raid NE massage parlor

Jen­nifer Bruzas

Com­munity com­plaints led to a po­lice raid on a Far North­east mas­sage par­lor that was be­ing op­er­ated as a house of pros­ti­tu­tion, po­lice said last Thursday.

Of­ficers from the City Wide Vice Unit ar­res­ted Jen­nifer Bruzas, 26, of the 4800 block of Van Kirk St. in Wissi­nom­ing dur­ing the March 5 raid. She was charged with pros­ti­tu­tion, so­li­cit­a­tion and prac­ti­cing mas­sage without a li­cense.

Vice cops began an in­vest­ig­a­tion of the Re­new Beauty Day Spa at 12003 Roosevelt Blvd. last month in re­sponse to com­plaints of pros­ti­tu­tion. The site is at the in­ter­sec­tion of Comly Road near a gas sta­tion, car wash, cheesesteak shop and nightclub. An un­der­cov­er cop re­turned to the spa on March 5 and was offered sex in ex­change for money, po­lice said. No oth­er ar­rests were an­nounced. ••
