Man & woman charged with prostitution; child found in front of hot truck

 

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A 4-year-old child was in the front seat of a truck, according to an arrest report, while a man and a prostitute were conducting business in the back.

Richard Roberts, 33, of Louisville, was arrested Tuesday at the intersection of S. Preston Street and E. Ormsby Avenue.

Police say Roberts was receiving oral sex from Brittany Douglas, 27, of Louisville, a woman police say has a history as a prostitute.

The child was sweating and crying, according to police records, while the recorded temperature in the city was 91 degrees with a heat index of 98.

The truck was not running and a window was "partially down."

The arresting officer says Roberts was pulling up his pants while getting out of the truck and that the suspect threw a crack pipe into the bed of the truck.

Roberts and Douglas are both charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, prostitution, tampering with physical evidence and first-degree wanton endangerment.
