Another Rockaway Craigslist Prostitution Bust

A 17-year-old Rockaway Park girl and her alleged pimp were arrested in the latest Craigslist prostitution sting last week inside a Nassau County hotel, according to police.

The girl, whose name is being withheld by police because she is still considered a minor, is from Rockaway Park. She allegedly booked a client through a Craigslist ad to have sex for $250. However, the client this time turned out to be a Nassau County vice squad detective, who arrested both the Rockaway Park girl and her pimp, Lameek Martin, 23, of Westbury inside a Hicksville, Long Island hotel.

The girl has been charged with misdemeanor prostitution. Martin, however, was arrested and charged with promoting prostitution, a felony offense, according to police.

Both suspects were arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead. This is the second Craigslist prostitution bust since March involving Rockaway residents. In March a Rockaway man was accused of unlawfully imprisoning two women and using them to promote prostitution by posting their photos on Craigslist, in order to attract customers for prostitution.
