RICHMOND, Va. -- Julie Jarman said she caught two people having sex in a car on her South Richmond property Thursday morning. She made the disturbing discovery when she arrived home and she saw there was already a car in her driveway.
"When I looked, there were two people in there and they were pulling up their pants," Jarman said. "The next thing I know he comes flying through there, runs over by the pond and crashes his car."
Jarman, shaken by what she saw, immediately called police. She said the woman, who she believed to be a prostitute left before police arrived. The police officer gave the man a summons.
"That's all they said they can do unless they catch them in the act," she said.
Jarman said that frustrated her because this is not the first time something like this has happened on her property.
Richmond City Councilwoman Reva Trammell said prostitution in the area is a big problem.
"We're sick of it," Trammell said. "She doesn't want to come out and look at this when their butts are up in the air and everything else, and you know exactly what they are doing."
Richmond Police said the department makes prostitution arrests all the time. Police also established prostitution free zones that allow police to arrest people found in the area who have been arrested before.
A police spokesperson said a Richmond police captain has been in touch with Jarman and is working to address her concerns.
Meanwhile, Jarman, who is a mother, said she just wants to see an end to this problem.
"What if she [her daughter] would have been coming down here on her bike or something by herself," said Jarman.
