Out of the eight men arrested four were Paterson residents, while the rest were from out of town. The johns attempted to solicit sex from the two undercover officers while still inside their vehicles on Market Street. All of the arrested individuals have been charged with solicitation of prostitution.

Each of the vehicle captured in the crackdown was impounded, and the men are awaiting appearance in the city’s municipal court.
