Armed Robbers Are Targeting Northwest Dallas "Massage" Parlors

Categories: Crime

If The Dallas Morning News' brief account of the Monday morning robbery of Hometown Day Spa left you a bit confused, you're forgiven. Two armed men walk in and credibly pass themselves off as customers for several minutes as they plot their heist?

The answer, as always, can be found on Backpage.com, where Hometown's ad is chock full of pictures of scantily clad Asian women with enormous breasts (NSFW, obviously).

It's one of those day spas.

So is Red Rose Spa, located in the midst of a cluster of strip clubs on Northwest Highway and boasting massage therapists with names like "Apple" and "Cookie."

At 3 a.m. Tuesday, it was also targeted by armed robbers.

The two heists differ slightly. In the first, there were two men, and they had a knife and Taser. In the second, there were several, and there was a gun. At Hometown, everyone was ushered into a back room. At Red Rose, they were forced into the kitchen and restrained with zip ties while the robbers made off with several cell phones and $3,650 in cash.

In both cases, witnesses described seeing the suspects drive off in a silver 2001 Cadillac sedan. Hometown has turned footage from its surveillance cameras -- which the cops say shows the robbers quite well -- over to police, so expect the suspects' happy ending to be short-lived.

Talk about your insult to injury. Many of these women are in something akin to indentured servitude, providing "services" so they can work off their debt to their "benefactors," who brought them over and took care of their work visas. These particular women got a bonus by being held up. Gotta feel sorry for 'em.

I asked the mama San for a happy ending. She closed the door, came back 5 minutes later and asked "you done yet?"

How did witnesses pinpoint the getaway car to a 2001 model?

Any allegations of theft of services?

@CogitoErgoSum  That's the answer for public consumption, yes. The truth of the matter is that many of these women now come here and do this purposely. They aren't "enslaved".  It's more romantic to think about because men can come and feel better about "helping" them. But you can see many of these women in daily life at the grocery store, etc.  They aren't "captured" or anything.

@ruddski  The Asian gals that work on TV get their eyes "westernized", the ones that work elsewhere get other things "westernized".

Shame shame shame. Asian women are among the most beautiful of God's creations, why mess with perfection?

I guess I'll just never fully understand womenfolk.
