BURLINGAME -- A 48-year-old San Francisco woman was arrested for prostitution at a massage parlor after she offered to perform a "sexual act" on an undercover police officer in exchange for money, police said.

Shi Xiu Yang was arrested Wednesday following an undercover police sting operation at the Crystal Wave Spa at 1205 Capuchino Ave. that came in response to complaints about prostitution at that location, said Burlingame police Capt. Mike Matteucci. No one answered the phone Friday afternoon at Crystal Wave.

Based on the complaints, an undercover officer went to the spa and requested a massage. Matteucci said Yang propositioned the officer during the massage, which resulted in her being booked for disorderly conduct. Matteucci went on to say police found no evidence of human trafficking at Crystal Wave.

Yang was released by police on her promise to appear in court.
