A woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon and accused of running a large prostitution ring on the East Side, the police said.

The woman, Kristen Davis, 32, operated four Web sites and had her employees, who charged up to $1,200 an hour, meet clients in apartments she kept in the neighborhood, law enforcement officials said.

The police said they were looking to arrest about 15 prostitutes who worked for Ms. Davis. Investigators seized $19,000 cash from Ms. Davis’s apartment and froze $500,000 in bank accounts linked to her, the police said.

She was arrested at her apartment, at 235 East 40th Street, and charged with money laundering and promoting prostitution, said Detective Cheryl Crispin.

March 7, 2022 - Four Charged With Running Online Prostitution Ring

By ALAN FEUER

Federal authorities arrested four people Thursday on charges of running an online prostitution ring that serviced clients in New York, Paris and other cities and took in more than $1 million in profits over four years.

The ring, known as the Emperor’s Club V.I.P., had 50 prostitutes available for appointments in New York, Washington, Miami, London and Paris, according to a complaint unsealed on Thursday in Federal District Court in Manhattan. The appointments, made by telephone or through on an online booking service, cost $1,000 to $5,500 an hour and could be paid for with cash, credit card, wire transfers or money orders, the complaint said.

According to the office of the United States attorney in Manhattan, Mark Brener, 62, of New Jersey, was the leader of the ring, but delegated day-to-day business responsibilities to Cecil Suwal, 23, also of New Jersey. The office said that Ms. Suwal controlled the bank accounts, took applications from prospective prostitutes and oversaw two booking agents, identified by the authorities as Temeka Rachelle Lewis, 32, of Brooklyn, and Tanya Hollander, 36, of Rhinebeck, N.Y.
