Another five men were arrested Ridgewood's well-known prostitution spot at Cypress Avenue and Starr Street.

Ridgewood’s infamous prostitution hot spot at the corner of Cypress Avenue and Starr Street added five more men to the list of those arrested at the intersection looking for a good time last weekend.

Police identified the alleged johns as Gilberto Ventura, 28, from Maspeth; Genaro Holguin-Naula, 26, from Brooklyn; Javier Salinas, 38, of Brooklyn; Oswaldo Quinduicaca, 32, of Ridgewood; and Khaled Kortas, 31, from Manhattan.

They were all arrested on the night of Saturday, Nov. 19, on charges of patronizing a prostitute.

In the past, the 104th Precinct has set up sting operations at the location, where undercover officers posing as prostitutes try to catch “johns” paying for sex.

Since May of this year — including the Nov. 19 bust — the 104th Precinct has arrested 46 individuals for patronizing a prostitute at the corner.
