 Polk County Sheriff’s Office Detectives Charge Masseuse with Lewd Solicitation and Battery 


Polk County Sheriff’s Office undercover detectives arrested 54-year-old Ren De Zhu, of 9734 Highway 192 Clermont, on Wednesday, March 5, 2014, charging her with soliciting another for Lewdness and Battery.   

After receiving information about possible illegal activity occurring at “Massage,” a business located at 9734 West Highway 192 in Clermont, a PCSO detective acting in an undercover capacity visited the business and purchased an “hour massage.”

The business is located in the unincorporated area of Polk County. 

During the “massage,” the undercover detective was solicited by the masseuse, Ren De Zhu.  Zhu asked the detective to remove his underwear and the detective declined.  During the “massage” Zhu physically removed the detective’s underwear.  She then grabbed the detective’s genitalia.  The detective immediately notified other detectives who responded and placed Zhu under arrest. 

Zhu told detectives through an interpreter she is an American citizen but emigrated from China.  She told detectives she just arrived a few days ago to determine if she wanted to purchase the business – though she had been observed in the business during the month of February.  

Zhu was transported to the Polk County jail without incident. 

"We will not tolerate this type of conduct at businesses in Polk County. We take pride in the quality of life our citizens enjoy, and we take quick action when we receive tips about illegal activity being conducted behind the facade of a shop or store." - Sheriff Grady Judd
