Six women were arrested for prostitution and one Baton Rouge man for pandering after a sting conducted through the website backpage.com, according to booking documents.
One woman, Kenisha Harris, was booked on additional counts of pandering, resisting an officer and battery after fighting with officers who met her at the adjoining gas station of a Baton Rouge hotel, according to booking documents.
After Harris, 27 of Sacramento, California, was met by officers, she allegedly said "fu-- you bit---s," and pulled her arms away from officers attempting to detain her. Harris allegedly continued to fling her arms around and kicked a deputy as she was being led to a police vehicle. Harris was allegedly transporting one of the women to the area to participate in prostitution.
The male suspect, Dmarcus Brown of Kaufman Street, was also arrested after allegedly transporting a woman to the hotel to participate in prostitution. The woman told police that Brown, 26, organized all of her "dates" through the website and transported her to them.
The other five women were booked Thursday with one count of prostitution after being advised to meet an undercover agent at the hotel. Those arrested were:
Brittany Allen, 25 of Modesto, California; Tameka Bess, 19 of Victoria, Texas; Leah Lee, 22 of Sacramento, California; Jahnai Wilson, 21 of San Francisco, California; and Alyssa Champagne, 19 of Prairieville.
After arriving at the hotel, all of the women offered sex and other services to undercover agents ranging from $120 to $500, according to booking documents.
