Four nabbed in prostitution sting

  • Oscar Sibri

  • Omar Gonzalez

Four men went to Kens­ing­ton Av­en­ue last Wed­nes­day look­ing for a good time but ended up be­hind bars on pros­ti­tu­tion-re­lated charges, ac­cord­ing to Phil­adelphia po­lice.

Of­ficers from the City­wide Vice Unit posed as hook­ers along the busy Kens­ing­ton cor­ridor. Four men, in­clud­ing two from the North­east, al­legedly offered the un­der­cov­er cops cash in ex­change for sex.

Po­lice iden­ti­fied the de­fend­ants as Oscar Sibri, 37, of the 2900 block of Cottman Ave. in May­fair; Omar Gonza­lez, 22, of the 6300 block of Cot­tage St. in Ta­cony; Aaron An­der­son, 25, of the unit block of Sharpn­ack St. in Ger­man­town; and John Nguy­en, 41, of the 5000 block of Pen­n­way St. in Felton­ville. All were charged with mis­de­mean­or pro­mot­ing pros­ti­tu­tion and so­li­cit­a­tion. Po­lice con­fis­cated $933 cash and four vehicles in the sting. ••
