Residents in SW Atlanta complain about increased prostitution

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Homeowners in a southwest Atlanta community are demanding that the city take action against prostitution in the area.

Residents in the Ashview Heights neighborhood say that  prostitutes are bolding conducting their business on the curbs in front of homes.

"There was a woman who was naked -- no clothes on – just walking up to vehicles," said Elizabeth Whitmore.  "I was flabbergasted and coming to my car and flagging down and I started driving – I didn't even go immediately home."

Whitmore, a Clark Atlanta graduate, lives close to the college and an elementary school.  

Atlanta City Councilmember Cleta Winslow said she's asked Mayor Kasim Reed to take action.

"We had gotten rid of it for quite a long time. It hadn't been in that area, but now it has come back, so I've talked to the mayor's office," Winslow said.

Mayor Reed will have a representative at a meeting scheduled for Tuesday evening  at the Washington Park branch library on MLK Drive.
