The Park City Police Department apprehended two men on Friday, April 28 on charges that they tried to hire prostitutes.
Sgt. Marty Howard said one of the men was referred to juvenile court and the other was arrested on a class B misdemeanor charge of solicitation of prostitution.
Howard said a woman in Prospector called the police at about 11:30 p.m. reporting that someone called her asking for women. The police obtained the number of the person who called the woman.

The two were arrested in a sting in the parking lot.
