Metro / Nashville Vice detectives assigned to the Specialized Investigations Division charged Nashvillian Fenshan Quan with sex trafficking for allegedly forcing a woman to repeatedly engage in prostitution inside a Lebanon Pike apartment.
Quan, 55, is jailed in lieu of $55,000 bond.
Detectives recently received an anonymous complaint that a prostitution operation was being run out of an apartment at 2258 Lebanon Pike. Friday night, an MNPD undercover officer responded to an internet ad for erotic massage. Upon arrival at the apartment, Quan motioned for another woman of Asian descent to join the undercover officer. She agreed to perform a sex act in exchange for $100, after which other detectives moved in to detain Quan and the second woman.
During questioning, the second woman, who is age 52, was visibly shaken and appeared to be in fear of Quan. She told detectives that Quan arranged for her to be flown from New York to Nashville earlier in the week, and that she was directed to perform sex acts on multiple men over the past few days. The woman said Quan would keep $80 from each encounter and give her $20. She said she had not eaten in two days and did not know how to escape from the apartment.
Detectives contacted representatives from an agency that provides services to victims of sex trafficking. They are providing lodging and food resources to the 52-year-old victim.
