Hoboken police arrest two women on prostitution charges
Following an undercover operation, detectives broke up an alleged prostitution ring and escort service on Friday that was being run out of a home on Monroe Street. Tipped off to the establishment that was advertising on-line at backpage.com, Detective Steven Aguiar called and made an appointment for Friday. When Aguiar showed up for his appointment at 6 p.m., Elena Gubskaya, 49, of Fort Lee, greeted him and guided him to a small room with a massage table, according to police. Zhanna Surykava, 34, of Brooklyn, joined Aguiar in the room and closed the door, police said. When Aguiar placed $200 on the table, Surykava allegedly said that for $200 he would “get everything,” which included sex. Surykava then asked Aguiar if he was a cop (a little late), to which Aguiar replied, “Yes,” and then he arrested both women.
Gubskaya and Surykava were charged with promoting prostitution and operating a sexually oriented business within 1,000 feet of Connors Primary School. Surykava was also charged with engaging in prostitution. The Story is here.
