Bronx Man Arrested in Connection to Rape of Flushing Massage Parlor Employee: NYPD Update

Security Footage of Terrell Green (NYPD Crimestoppers)

April 30, 2019 By Meghan Sackman

Police have arrested a Bronx man who allegedly raped a Flushing massage parlor employee on Saturday after asking her for a foot massage.

Terrell Green, a 21-year-old man who was living in a homeless shelter on Broadway in the Bronx, was arrested yesterday and charged with rape, robbery, two counts of burglary, and grand larceny.

Green allegedly pinned the 56-year-old parlor employee to a massage bed and raped her on April 27 around 2:30 p.m., according to police.

Green had been posing as a customer when he raped her at the parlor, which is located in the vicinity of Main Street and 37th Avenue in Flushing.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where she was treated and is in stable condition.

Green was arrested Monday at a Bronx residency at about 9 p.m. for the rape as well as a robbery that occurred at a different massage parlor at around 8 p.m. on Feb. 20, police say.

Green allegedly robbed a 50-year-old woman at that massage parlor, located at 39-06 Main St., while she was trying to close it for the night. Green allegedly kicked in the door and forcefully entered the location and stole the woman’s purse–as she fled–which contained $700 and credit cards.

Authorities found Green after receiving tips via Crimestoppers.  

Green is expected to appear in Queens Criminal Court on May 10.

I don’t know it is true or not… I heard some police frequent those parlor refusing to pay. Some lady met pressure and jump to her death… Chinese are useless in helping fellow Chinese.


City ought to go after the landlords…that’ll stop prostitution quick. But of course this is New York City, with politicians in real estate’s pockets!

Interesting… 39-06 Main Street… from 9 am to at least 10 pm there are usually multiple Asian women trying to appear sexy in their outfits (weather permitting), hanging out in the doorway of 39-06 Main st. (a common entrance for a number of businesses, including signs for a Spa, and an “adult toy store”), and are soliciting mostly non-Asian men for “massages”. They mutter “hello… hello…” or “massage… massage…” or “you like massage?” to try to lure you over & inside as you pass by on busy Main Street. As reported in the news for over a year now, a mere 1 1/2 blocks away is 40 th road, which is now a famous hot spot for prostitution (with nation-wide tentacles), where 7 or more “massage parlours” were raided and shut down on a single day. The “ladies” on that street mutter the same words. Unfortunately the police are not very active or successful in shutting these places down, and the problem has now festered such that it is lowering the quality of life in Flushing to soon become the next 42nd Street of years ago. You can find various articles from other states, citing women that have been arrested for prostitution that got their start in Flushing / giving some of these addresses. The concept to arrest the Johns instead of the Prostitutes is not working. Do the math… 50 prostitutes each servicing 15 men a day, and you go after the 750 men one at a time vs. the 50 prostitutes. Sure some of the hookers are abused / coerced / traffic-ed and need help, but some are profiting big time / running the shows too, as are their superiors. The real losers are the residents of Flushing who have to put up with this day in and day out vs. a swift and targeted shutdown by law enforcement of ALL of the places. Letting these prostitutes and the ringleaders into the country to conduct businesses like these are nothing more than another form of terrorism intended to destroy quality of life. And if you dont think so, bring your children for a stroll down 40th road, it will be an educational experience.


Nice life money robbed, rape a woman, look at his smile?? Legal Aid Society stupid lawyers another case for your pleasure. Donot help old people who want help only criminals and free money received from state and city to save criminals, only in America. Legal Aid save me, I am sick? That will be the excuse from him and his family. Or the police forgot to read his Miranda rights???
