HOUSTON (AP) - Police say two dozen men allegedly trying to swap money for sex have been arrested in a Houston prostitution sweep.

Houston police on Friday announced the men face prostitution charges in an anti-sex trafficking effort that began Nov. 19 and ended Tuesday.

The arrests involved three separate areas near south Interstate 45.

A police statement says a 47-year-old woman was arrested on charges of soliciting prostitution. The male suspects range in age from 19 to 62.

Houston police say the goal is to lower the demand for sex trafficking, which often involves underage girls and women being abused and coerced into prostitution.
