BROCKTON (CBS) – A week after a Brockton woman took to the streets to protest a rise in prostitution in her neighborhood, police have made good on their vow to crack down.
Brockton police say they arrested twenty people.
Last week, resident Suzanne Pocius-Ford began standing outside on the corner with a sign that read “Stop Prostitution in Brockton,” saying she was fed up.
Each person who was arrested has been charged with a single count of sexual conduct for a fee. One of the suspects was arrested twice in the same day. The suspects and their photos are listed below.
