For the last three years, the escorts at the Hartford Escort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale have been a regular fixture in the Fort Lauderdale gay community.
In recent years, however, their popularity has taken a turn for the worse.
In May 2017, the Fort Miami Beach Police Department raided the spa after an alleged gang rape of an escort in the spa’s basement.
The arrest of a Fort Lauderdale man in connection with the rape of a woman in the hotel’s basement is now the subject of a massive police investigation.
When asked about the situation at the spa, manager Lisa Foye told ABC News, “The women have had their lives shattered, so it’s been tough.”
Foye, who spoke to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity, said that the spa has “lost a lot of business” in recent months.
“They’ve lost the ability to have escorts,” she said.
“We’re just in the process of trying to figure out what’s going on.
And, as far as the allegations, it’s really, really hard for us to know.”
Fort Lauderdale police are investigating the prostitution allegations, which have since been dropped, as well as the theft of $2,500 worth of jewelry and $10,000 in cash from the spa.
But Foyer said that it is unclear whether the men who allegedly committed the crimes have been charged in connection.
A Fort Lauderdale Police Department spokesperson told ABCNews.com that it was investigating the allegations.
According to Fort Lauderdale police, the investigation began after the Fort Myers police department was notified of a possible prostitution and sexual exploitation case at the Fort Marcy Spa.
Fort Myers police have said that they have “no information to indicate any additional crimes have occurred at the Spa.”
The Fort Lauderdale Escort and Spa told ABC affiliate WPBF that the allegations were not true.
It’s unclear whether charges will be filed against the Fort Lauderdale man who was arrested.
Last year, a Fort Myers escort named Andrea Marie Kline was killed after being raped at the hotel.
Kline was a 22-year-old woman who worked as a prostitute at the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale in Fort Myers.
More than a year later, police announced the arrest of the owner of the Fort Lauderdale Spa.
“I know the women who were raped and murdered, and I want to help them recover from what happened to them,” Fort Lauderdale attorney Mark K. Smith told WPBF.
“This is not about money.
This is about justice for these women.
We’re trying to make sure that justice is served.”
Smith added that the Fort Meyers Police Department will also investigate the alleged crime.
