Niles massage parlor owner charged with bribery

NILES — Suzi Kim’s Spa, closed since July 1 for failing a surprise inspection, now has another challenge to overcome before it can reopen — two counts of felony bribery filed against its owner.

Niles police arrested Chong Suk Williams, 70, of Cool Springs Church, Mercer, Pa., this morning after inviting her there to discuss the closing of the massage parlor.

Two previous times city officials went to the spa at 5974 Youngstown Road — July 10 and July 12 — Williams tried to bribe an inspector with the Niles Fire Department to give the spa a favorable report so it could reopen, Niles police said.

Williams was arraigned today on the two charges in Niles Municipal Court and was released after posting $10,000 bond.
