Two women working at spas in Lisle have been charged with prostitution, authorities said Thursday.
Police arrested the women Tuesday at different spas on Ogden Avenue after they "offered to perform illegal services," said Lisle Sgt. Ron Wilke. The charges are misdemeanors.
Partially as a result of the arrests, the village is rejecting both spas' requests to renew their licenses for the coming year, said Judy Lagro, Lisle's business office manager.
Charged with prostitution are Sook U. Lee, 45, of Naperville and Sook J. Cho, 44, of Romeoville.
Lee was arrested at International Spa, 1612 Ogden Ave.
Cho was arrested at Ogden Spa, 560 Ogden Ave. She also was charged with battery after authorities said she resisted a police officer.
When the officer tried to arrest Cho, Wilke said, "she jumped up and scratched him."
Both women were released on $1,000 bond.
Business license renewal forms for both spas had been filed by the same license holders.
Those renewals have been denied by Mayor Joseph Broda.
