CONCORD, N.C. —
Neighbors say there's a prostitution problem in a Concord neighborhood, and recently, police have been cracking down on the illegal activity near Ann Street and Buffalo Avenue. Police have already arrested two women in the last week for soliciting an undercover officer. They were arrested in daylight. "I leave to go to work at 6:30 in the morning, and I see them walking up and down the road," Travis Hailey said. Hailey told Eyewitness News he drives by three of four prostitutes a day on Kerr Street, and there's a school on the same road. "You got a school, and there's a lot of kids walking around…and it's definitely not the place for them," Hailey said. Other neighbors are also concerned. "There was one who actually stopped my grandpa," Beverly Reynolds said. Reynolds has lived in the neighborhood near St. John's Avenue her entire life, and she says recently she's seen activity she's never seen before. "I seen one just the other day get out of a car over here," Reynolds said. Like Hailey, she's glad police are cracking down. "It needs to be taken care of," Reynolds said. "It's not good. I mean there are kids that come out, and we have kids here all the time. They don't need to see that."
