NE woman arrested for prostitution

Lisa Mar­ie Di­Bi­a­sio

An Academy Gar­dens wo­man was ar­res­ted on pros­ti­tu­tion charges on April 18 after an un­der­cov­er po­lice of­ficer al­legedly re­spon­ded to her ad in the adult sec­tion of a web-based clas­si­fied page.

The vice squad cop called a phone num­ber in the ad and al­legedly ar­ranged to meet Lisa Mar­ie Di­Bi­a­sio, 24, at a prop­erty on the 2000 block of Tremont St. in Bustleton. Di­Bi­a­sio, of the 9500 block of Ford­ham Road, al­legedly offered to have sex with the of­ficer in ex­change for cash.

Di­Bi­a­sio was charged with pro­mot­ing pros­ti­tu­tion and [en­ga­ging in] pros­ti­tu­tion and re­lated of­fenses. Vice cops have con­duc­ted nu­mer­ous stings in the North­east and Kens­ing­ton areas in re­cent weeks, ar­rest­ing nu­mer­ous al­leged pros­ti­tutes, pimps and “Johns.” Po­lice have tar­geted ad­vert­ised es­cort ser­vices and mas­sage par­lors as well as men who at­tempt to pro­pos­i­tion hook­ers in the street. ••
