GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Two people have been charged after a man picked up a prostitute in a church parking lot, according to Greenwood City Police.

Police said they had numerous complaints about a woman prostituting herself from her house behind a church on Singleton Court in Greenwood, when police investigated they saw a man pick up the woman in the parking lot of the church.

According to police, the woman, Jessica Blackmon, 22, got in the car with Robert Morgan, 38, and then drove to a store and then back to a residence on Singleton Court.

Police then knocked on the door of the house and Blackmon and Morgan answered the door and Morgan was visibly nervous and said he did not want to go to jail before police questioned him about anything, according to the police report.

According to the report, Morgan said he was looking for another woman and then Blackmon flagged him down and then they went to the store so she could get a condom. In the report he said he did not have sex with Blackmon because police arrived and knocked on the door.

The police report said Blackmon stated she was not prostituting and went to the store to get cigarettes and a tampon, but later in the report she said she bought a condom at the store. Blackmon also said Morgan was there to buy crack and not sex, according to the report.
