On Friday, City of Tonawanda police raided Sunnyside Massage and arrested Tonawanda residents Jinrong Wang, 57 and Zou Yan, 53, along with Lihua Sun, 51, of New York City. The investigation had been ongoing for a month. Police were able to make arrests after an undercover detective was propositioned for sex. Authorities learned Sun is an illegal alien and was issued a federal detainer. 

The women are facing charges that include Promoting Prostitution in the 3rd degree, Permitting Prostitution, Resisting Arrest and Obstructing Government Administration. Homeland Security assisted in the investigation.
