Bronxville Prostitution Bust

Police say they have made one prostitution arrest and more arrests could be on the way in connection with a Bronxville spa.

One woman has been arrested on prostitution charges at a local spa and more arrests could be on the way, according to Bronxville Police. Investigators arrested Ekaterina Maragushina, 27, at Bronxville's American Spa. The spa is located at 27 Lower Milburn Street, one block south of Palmer Avenue.

Police say the arrest came after a two-month investigation. Bronxville Police say they worked hand-in-hand with the Westchester County Department of Safety during the course of the investigation.

Maragushina, who lives in Brooklyn, faces a misdemeanor prostitution charge and a felony charge of unauthorized practice of a profession.

Investigators say the 27-year-old offered to perform a sexual act for additional money. Her next court appearance is set for February 6.

Bronxville Police say they expect more people who are connected to the spa to be charged in the future. Police say Bronxville's American Spa had advertised on the Internet for "body rubs."
