Media Contact for Quincy Man Arrested for Trafficking Multiple Women for Sex at Allston Brothel, Stoneham “Massage Parlor”
Boston — A Quincy man has been arrested and arraigned for trafficking multiple women at a residential brothel in Allston and at a so-called “massage parlor” in Stoneham, Attorney General Maura Healey announced today.
Geekin Ng, age 59, of Quincy, was arrested on Wednesday without incident in Allston by Massachusetts State Police assigned to the AG’s Office and the Boston Police Department’s Human Trafficking and Special Investigation Units and District 14. Ng was charged with Trafficking of Persons for Sexual Servitude and Keeping House of Ill Fame and was arraigned today in Brighton District Court.
At the arraignment, Ng pleaded not guilty to the charges and bail was set at $250,000 cash with the conditions of release that he surrender his passport and be subject to GPS monitoring. A probable cause hearing is scheduled for June 27.
This arrest is the result of a months-long joint investigation by Massachusetts State Police assigned to the AG’s Office and the Boston Police Department.
During the course of the investigation, authorities developed evidence indicating that Ng ran a profitable and organized criminal enterprise through a residential brothel in Allston and Lucky Star Body Work in Stoneham, which were set up as fronts for human trafficking.
At these locations, Ng allegedly offered sexual activity between women and buyers in exchange for a fee. He delivered food and other supplies to the locations and advertised sexual services to buyers. Ng allegedly received the majority of the profits from these sexual encounters.
AG Healey’s Victim Services Division is working with victim service organizations to ensure victims have the assistance and services they need.
The investigation remains ongoing. These charges are allegations, and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
AG Healey has a dedicated Human Trafficking Division that focuses on policy, prevention and prosecution and includes a team of specialized prosecutors, victim advocates and Massachusetts State Police troopers who handle high impact, multi-jurisdictional human trafficking investigations and prosecutions across the state. Through the Human Trafficking Division, the AG’s Office has charged more than 40 individuals in connection with human trafficking since the law was passed.
As part of her commitment to reduce the demand for illegal sex and raise awareness about sex trafficking, AG Healey joined Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the business community in May to announce that 23 businesses adopted zero-tolerance policies on sex buying for their workplaces as part of a new initiative called Employers Against Sex Trafficking (EAST).
This case is being prosecuted by Deputy Chief of the AG’s Human Trafficking Division Jennifer Snook and Assistant Attorney General Thomas Caldwell, with assistance from Victim Witness Advocates Rebecca Quigley and Megan Murphy and Financial Investigator Kit Metoyer. The investigation was handled by the Massachusetts State Police assigned to the AG’s Office, the AG’s Digital Evidence Lab, and the Boston Police Department’s Human Trafficking and Special Investigation Units and District 14, with assistance from the Stoneham Police Department.
