Oldest profession temporarily put out of business

Why does she feel like somebody’s watching her?

Cops on patrol Monday at 1:45 a.m. in the Polk Street corridor spotted a woman loitering for the purpose of prostitution, they said. The woman was warned about this 30 minutes earlier, police said.

The woman walked up and down the street, hiding behind cars to avoid their watchful gaze, police said. The officers continued their patrol elsewhere and when they returned, saw the woman talking with a man. When they eyeballed cops approaching, they split ways faster than Tiger and Elin, police said.

The officers stopped them both and the woman was cited for maintaining a public nuisance while the potential “John” got off easy and was told to leave the area, police said.
