    One of the newest massage parlors in Providence, Rhode Island, didn't last a week before it was raided for prostitution.

    The Providence Journal reports
    the Angel Spa was first to open since the passage of an ordinance regulating "body works" establishments. The ordinance intended to crack down on suspected prostitution and sex trafficking, and resulted in the closure of all city spas February.

    The Angel Spa opened in a location that had been home to other massage parlors, and is next to a tavern frequented by police officers.

    Police say they arrested 55-year-old Kyung Ae Chun after she allegedly offered a $40 sex act to an undercover detective.

    Major David Lapatin says officers seized numerous membership cards and $3,210 in cash, most of which was stashed in a pillowcase in a back room.
