Talk about stranger things. Earlier this week Newark police arrested six transgender women for prostitution and soliciting.
The arrest came after multiple complaints were made from the following areas: Mulberry Street, Scott Street, Orchard Street and Camp Street. In response to the quantity of complaints made by residents, detectives decided to carry out an investigation which subsequently led to the arrests.
The individuals in question are Remones McDaniel, 29; Dorell Korngay,19; DeShawn Washington, 26; Zayquan R. Twitty, 20; and Yusef Husdon, 26. foreign national Derrick Benson, 25, of Hamburg was also arrested and charged. Apparently, the individuals were involved in a mysterious prostitution ring. No further information has been released yet.
The Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose said in a statement,
“These arrests are due to the public’s involvement in alerting us to criminal activity occurring in their neighborhoods. Our partnership with our citizens is one of our greatest assets. We will continue to respond to and answer citizen complaints while enforcing the law.”
This has not been the only recent case. Police are currently on high alert to stop the further suspicious activity.
