Four women were arrested yesterday in a Center City prostitution sting conducted by undercover vice officers, police said.

Aesun Baek, 45, In Sun Hopkins, 62, Jung Okan, 46, and Yunjung Heo, 26, were nabbed in the 1819 Spa, on Ranstead Street near 18th, after police say a plainclothes officer was solicited there.

Hopkins, Okan and Heo are all charged with prostitution, police said, and Baek is charged with prostitution, solicitation, conspiracy and massage without a license.

Police said their arrests were part of an ongoing investigation of the spa. Three of the women lived on the same block as the spa, according to authorities, and Heo is from Atlantic City.

Cops also confiscated more than $6,600 cash, a laptop, camera equipment and cell phones from the spa.
