PATERSON, NJ - On Friday evening, the Paterson Police Department Narcotics Unit and Alcohol Beverage Control Division carried out operations as a result of "an overwhelming amount of complaints received" regarding two addresses, according to a statement from Public Safety Director Jerry Speziale.
One of those locations was the Cabaret Lounge on Cianci Street. There a Hawthorne man, Victor Morales, 67, was arrested and charged with "promoting prostitution and maintaining a nuisance" according to the statement. A Bronx woman, 40, was arrested and charged with prostitution.
The Cabaret Lounge had been raided and closed previously in March for similar complaints, resulting in a number of arrests when undercover detectives were solicited for acts of prostitution.
