SUNSET PARK - Three NYPD officers surrendered to authorities to face corruption and burglary charges stemming from a sting at a Sunset Park massage parlor.

Lt. Stephen Wang, Sgt. Kwun So and Officer Yuseff Hamm arrested seven women and one man in the raid at 4214 8th Ave. on April 12. Officials say one of the suspects told the cops in-store videotape would vindicate the accused. According to authorities, the three cops returned the next day and destroyed the evidence.

Wang, So and Hamm maintain they're innocent. Their attorneys claim the men's arrests are politically motivated. A grand jury will hear the case in September.
