31 arrested in prostitution raids


In a two-day operation that ended last night, police arrested 16 men for solicitation and 15 women for prostitution in West Baltimore and impounded several cars belonging to customers.

One of the men arrested Wednesday night solicited a female police officer for sex while riding a 10-speed bicycle, which also was impounded.

Western District Sgts. James Kelly and Michael Caperoon said the arrests were made at Baltimore and Schroeder streets last night and at North and Pennsylvania avenues Wednesday. During the operation, undercover female officers posed as prostitutes.

The suspects were processed at the Central Booking and Intake Center pending bail hearings.
