WAKEFIELD — Police yesterday arrested a Boston woman on a charge of offering a sexual act for a fee.

The same woman — Cheung Wan Li, 49, 25 James O’Neill St., #501, Boston — was arrested in 2013 on the same charge, said police.

Working undercover with regional detectives, Wakefield Dets. Christopher Grace, John Ryan and Kenneth Silva went to Wendy’s Spa on DelCarmine Street at about noon Thursday and arrested Li after she offered sex for a fee.

She was arraigned in Malden District Court today.
