CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A two-day prostitution sting staged by Aurora Police Special Operations investigators resulted in arrests of 21 men and 5 women.

"Despite what some believe, prostitution is not a victimless crime," Chief of Police Greg Thomas says. "Aside from the obvious health risks, these services advertised on websites are frequently nothing more than fronts for violent crimes including armed robberies, batteries and assaults. The message is clear. People that engage in these behaviors should stay clear of Aurora."

The arrests of the five women and two of the men on Wednesday resulted from an undercover officer responding to advertisements on the targeted websites and setting up meetings with the suspects at an undisclosed Aurora address. The suspects were arrested after they allegedly offered the undercover officer money in exchange for sexual favors.

Charged with prostitution on Wednesday were:

Ashley Lynn Brevig, 25, of the 100 block of Stroble Av., Amboy Il; Christopher Lee Rosario, 23, of the 700 block of Lewisburg Ln.; and Veleda Ayana Bell, 22, of the 2100 block of Best Pl., both of Aurora; Tetiana Pylypenko, 23, of the 3200 block of N. Cicero; and Rachel Grace Binkley, 20, of the 3100 block of N. Springfield, both of Chicago; and Infinity Onyaye Flynn, 20, of the 3200 block of W. Lafayette Av., Decatur.

Pylypenko was also charged with battery for allegedly throwing a water bottle at the undercover officer during her arrest. In addition, Byron Charles Young, 21, of the 2100 block of E. 68th in Chicago, who accompanied Ms. Flynn to the setup location, was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon after a pistol was located in his vehicle incident to his arrest.

19 men were arrested and charged with solicitation of a sexual act on Thursday after they responded to a different location in reference to an ad placed by Aurora police on one of the internet sites. They likewise allegedly offered undercover officer money in exchange for sex. They include:
