Police arrested eight men last weekend for soliciting a prostitute on Roosevelt Avenue, an area that has experienced this quality-of-life issue for years.

The operation was conducted just after 11 p.m. on March 24 in Corona, according to a spokesperson for the NYPD. The Conditions Unit of the 110th Precinct found that the men were paying between $50 and $500 for a variety of services.

The men all ranged in age – the youngest perpetrator was 25 years old and the oldest was 44 years old. Each man was charged with soliciting a prostitute. The names and ages of the men charged are as follows: Mora Cruz, 25, Guy Bandenay, 44, German Gonzalez, 29, Santos Perez, 36, Alvaro Sanches, 39, Carlos Quituizaca, 28, Jonathan Bautista, 22, and Ismael Flores, 26.

Detective Janine Rivera of the 110th Precinct Community Affairs Unit said officers try to conduct these operations monthly to address the issue. Senator Jose Peralta, who has jurisdiction over parts of Corona, has called for the creation of a 11-member Commission on Roosevelt Avenue to help clean up the area.
