Neighbors upset after seeing people having sex on porch in broad daylight

RICHMOND, Virginia (WTVR) -- After spotting multiple people allegedly having sex, in broad daylight, on the back porch of a vacant Richmond house, viewers contacted the CBS 6 Problem Solvers for help.

One viewer said her family could not enjoy hanging out in their own backyard because of the lewd activities taking place across the alleyway. The vacant house in question sits near N 21st and T Streets, according to the viewer.

Neighbors and Richmond Police said prostitution is a known problem in that area. Neighbors said it was not uncommon to see people engaging in sexual conduct while sitting inside parked cars on N 21 St.

To date this year, Richmond Police said they have made 20 prostitution related arrests in the area. It was already considered a "Targeted Enforcement Zone," and Richmond Police have deployed a walking beat officer in the area.

Investigators said anyone who spots suspicious activity in their neighborhood should contact police immediately.
