HENRICO, VA (WWBT) – A Florida man faces 14 prostitution-related charges following his arrest in Henrico this weekend.

Damien O. MacIntosh, 28, was arrested early Saturday. That morning, Henrico Police responded to the 8300 block of Brook Road in reference to a suspicious situation. Police say MacIntosh picked up Latonya M. Belle, 27, of North Carolina, for the purposes of soliciting her as a prostitute. In addition, police say MacIntosh contacted an unidentified 18 year old woman and offered cash in exchange for sex. Police say the woman agreed, but after having sex, MacIntosh is alleged to have brandished a firearm, telling the woman, "she now belonged to him", according to Henrico Police Lt. Eric Owens.

Police say MacIntosh posted an advertisement of the victim on an online dating service and solicited her as a prostitute to several customers.

Belle faces charges of prostitution and drug possession.
