Tue., 1:13pm: Niles massage parlor owner arrested

WARREN — The owner of a Niles massage parlor arrested on a warrant issued last month is being held at the Trumbull County Jail.

Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge Peter Kontos issued the arrest warrant for Chong S. Williams, 70, owner of Suzi Kim’s because Williams didn’t appear for court hearings connected to allegations that she tried to bribe an inspector with the Niles Fire Department.

Court officials previously told a Tribune Chronicle reporter they were informed that Williams, of Mercer, Pa., was in Korea. However, she was arrested near Pittsburgh last week and had been held at the Allegheny County Jail in Pennsylvania before being brought to Trumbull County on Monday.

She is scheduled to appear in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court for an arraignment/pretrial at 8:30 a.m. Monday.
