A 73-year-old James City County man is facing prostitution charges after police say he was assaulted by a woman who allegedly performed sexual favors for him.
According to Stephanie Williams, spokeswoman for the James City County Police Department, police responded to an open line 911 call from a residence in the 6200 block of Tewkesbury Way on March 12.
When police arrived, they found the telephone ripped from the wall, signs of a struggle and Richard Parker, 73, laying on the ground grasping his knee, Williams said.
Parker told police he had been assaulted by a 27-year-old woman he said performed sexual favors for him in exchange for money, food and a place to stay. He informed police there had been another 21-year-old woman present during the incident.
According to Parker’s report to police, the two women got into an altercation when one woman discovered Parker had been having sex with the other, when “she was only to have been providing exotic dances,” Williams said.
The 27-year-old woman, who is a resident of Newport News, then assaulted Parker. Police say she threw his computer to the ground and ripped the telephone off of the wall when he attempted to call 911.
Parker is charged scheduled to appear at Williamsburg-James City County General District Court on prostitution charges at 8:30 a.m. on March 28.
Warrants are pending against the 27-year-old woman for prostitution, destruction of property, assault and battery and unlawful interference with 911.
