A Main Line massage parlor has been shut down and two women are facing prostitution charges after Radnor and Pennsylvania State Police conducted an undercover sting in Wayne.

Investigators say several detectives were offered sexual services for money at the Body of Zen massage parlor in Devon Square located on the 200 block of Sugartown Road.

Police say risque advertisements by Body of Zen led police to check it out.

"Our chief just decided to check all these institutions, not just the massage parlors, but other ones that may or may not have different types of activity because we want to keep our township safe," said Lt. Chris Flanagan.

Radnor police say the investigation is ongoing, and detectives are trying to learn if the prostitution case may lead to human trafficking.

"If some of these women providing services are being there against their will, we hope we are able to help them as well because they are victims themselves," said Flanagan.

The undercover sting and allegations in the upscale shopping center has neighboring business owners stunned.

Most said there was foot traffic at Body of Zen, but nothing indicating criminal activity.

"It's bizarre, I'm not going to lie," said Cortie Wetherill of Ella's Bistro. "It's definitely not something that you see on the Main Line, especially out in Radnor. It's insane actually. I'm shocked."

Police have not released the identities of the women charged.
