The Park City Police Department was called to intervene in what is described as a dispute about money between an escort and a Park Meadows man in the overnight hours earlier in October.

The police responded to an address in Park Meadows at 3:39 a.m. on Oct. 20. The initial report to the police indicated that the woman might have taken the money at knifepoint, but it is not clear whether that is the case, the police later said.

Phil Kirk, a police captain, said officers searched Park Meadows for a vehicle matching the description the woman was in after receiving the report. An officer pulled a vehicle over matching the description on Park Avenue close to the Holiday Ranch Loop Road intersection. The woman was alone in the vehicle.

She provided conflicting statements about what occurred, Kirk said. The officer arrested her on an unspecified warrant. She is 23 years old and from Salt Lake City, the police said.

Kirk said the woman told the police she is a self-employed escort. She agreed to perform a private dance dressed in lingerie at the house in Park Meadows, Kirk said. He declined to detail the price but said the dispute between the woman and the man ranged between $200 and $400. She told the police the man hired her after seeing an online listing.

Kirk said the woman told the police the man wanted "more than just the dance." She left and the man wanted his money back, Kirk said.

"She became uncomfortable and at that point left the residence but kept the money," the captain said.


Kirk said the woman holds a sexually-oriented business license from Salt Lake City that allows her to offer escort services. She does not hold such a license from Park City, though, he said.

The police investigation is continuing. City Hall prosecutors will consider whether charges will be filed. Kirk said it was not clear what charges could be brought.
