Okla. prostitution suspects had children with them
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Police in Oklahoma City say two people
being held on prostitution charges had six children with them when
they were arrested.
Police said Monday that 42-year-old Michael Blackmon and
36-year-old Wendolyn Ward were arrested Saturday night at a
northeast Oklahoma City truck stop. The two were arrested after a
truck driver called police to report a man offering girls for
prostitution in the truck stop's parking lot.
The children range in age from 9 to 17 and are now in state
custody. Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow says it's not clear whether
any of the children were used as prostitutes.
