Northeast women arrested during Mummers prostitution bust

Ten women were arrested last week after police raided a Mummers facility and broke up a prostitution ring.

Two members of the Downtowners Fancy Brigade face liquor charges, and several suspects have been charged for prostitution following a weeks-long investigation of the South Philadelphia club.

Women were found inside nude or barely dressed and taken into custody. Among them are three Northeast residents: 40-year-old Sherry Davidson of Tacony, 26-year-old Regina Mahoney of Wissinoming and 51-year-od Adriana Arena of Somerton.
