Woman arrested, facing second prostitution charge
BATON ROUGE - A woman is facing her second prostitution charge after police caught her getting into a man's truck.
Around 8:30 p.m. Sunday, officers were patrolling the 2100 block of Seneca Street relative to numerous complaints about prostitution and drug activity in the area. While in the area, officers noticed a GMC Sierra truck blocking the roadway.
