Thirteen people found Monday a bad day to shop for sex in downtown Davenport.

In a sting using undercover female Davenport police officers, 12 men and one woman were arrested for prostitution. All were misdemeanor charges.

A 39-year-old woman was arrested for interference with official acts and harassment of a public official for telling one man he was speaking to an undercover police officer, according to police.

The men ranged in age from 17 to 26, according to police. Five of the men were from Davenport, but one man was from Dubuque, Iowa, and another man, who works for a local trucking company, provided an address in Buckeye, Ariz. The Davenport woman arrested for prostitution was 19.

The men solicited various sex acts for $20-$40 according to police reports.

The sweep, involving officers from the department’s vice, patrol and NETS units, worked from about 4 p.m. to midnight on detail, according to police. About 20 officers were involved.

Arrests were made from River Drive to about three blocks north, and from Pershing Street west to South Concord Street, according to police.
