Prostitute Worked Out of House on Westfield Ave., Cops Say

August 25, 2014 at 4:53 PM

WESTFIELD, NJ — Xue Juan Han, 47, owner of Jenny’s Massage Studio at 409 Westfield Ave., was arrested Aug. 12 and charged with promoting and engaging in prostitution. She was processed and released on a summons.

While Han owns Jenny’s, she does not own the building, which is up for sale, according to a sign out front.

Westfield Police Chief David Wayman said police do not have the right to close down the business. It is unclear if Jenny’s is still in operation.

Jenny’s sits between a tea house and a boutique/art studio on a quiet street near the Westfield train station, with Holy Trinity School just around the corner.

Wayman said he believes the massage parlor started off as a legitimate business and “progressed from there.” When police investigated recently, “We didn’t come across any signs of legitimate business taking place,” he said.

Police believe Han was the only person working there.

“On a quiet little street in Westfield. It’s crazy,” said Jenna DeLorenzi, co-owner of Mulberry House, a new restaurant that opened next door in the building that used to be Ana Beal’s Tea Room. DeLorenzi said she had suspected something was up when she noticed lots of different men parking in front, going into Jenny’s for 20 minutes and leaving, usually between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.

A post about Jenny’s Massage Studio on NewJersey.BackPage.com dated Feb. 21, 2013, advertises beautiful Asian girls at that location and asks for cash only.
