WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - The Wichita Falls Police Department arrested two women Thursday on prostitution charges.
Both suspects, Huihan Cao and Caiyun Han, worked at a spa in Century Plaza on Maplewood Avenue. They are now in the Wichita County Jail.
A nearby business owner said she had concerns about what she thought was going on at the Health Massage Spa and decided to do something about it.
“I had noticed some suspicious activity going on over there and so I decided to call the human trafficking hot line because I felt as though there were women there that are being used against their will,” Katie Bindel, co-owner of Stone Oven Pizza, said.
She adds that call was made about a week ago. Affidavits released by WFPD have revealed both suspects have been charged with prostitution, a class B misdemeanor and that Cao is also being held on a federal immigration warrant.
“I hope that the WFPD decides to further their investigation and find the source of this to shut it all down,” Bindel said. “I think there is a bigger source here and I think there is a bigger problem that we need to address as a community.”
Police have confirmed these arrests are not related to a massive sting that happened last September.
Police did report in September that their investigation would continue.
