CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Charlotte police say they have arrested six people in north Charlotte in a prostitution operation.

The focus of the operation on Wednesday was to respond to citizen complaints with regard to robberies that stemmed from prostitution related crimes.

Monica McGuire has lived in the community for years. She told WBTV she saw the alleged prostitution regularly and often called police.

"Strange women that don't belong with families and maybe you see them now and maybe you don't," she said. "Then maybe you see somebody different the next time."

Officers had received information concerning prostitution activity occurring in the Frontenac Avenue and Eastway Drive areas around Shamrock Drive. Several robberies had also occurred in both locations, according to a news release from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. 

Teresa Reese, another neighbor, said the arrests were a long time coming.

"Robbing, rape and everything else," said. "I hope it stays out and get clean because it will be better and a better community."

Uniformed and undercover officers saturated these areas to identify and arrest prostitutes.

Officers took six individuals into custody during the operation.

Delmonica Cuthbertson, 37, is charged with soliciting crime against nature, loiter for purpose of prostitution.

Wendi Wolfe, 42, and Lisa Ayers, 42, are charged with solicit crime against nature, soliciting prostitution.
