Fort Bend Sheriff’s Office Human Trafficking Unit detectives Feb. 23 arrested a woman on a prostitution charge at a massage business in the 25700 block of Westheimer Parkway.
The arrest came after detectives and the Fort Bend County district attorney’s office investigated the business. The sheriff’s office said Yan Yuan, 37, of Fort Bend County, was arrested, charged with prostitution and has been released on bond.
This case has been turned over to Fort Bend County Attorney’s Office for further review.
CORRECTION: The print edition, in its subhead on the prostitution arrest, identified Yan Yuan as a man. Yuan is a woman. The Times regrets the error.
