A self-described “lonely” 26-year-old Cahoon Rd. man called an escort service for some companionship on Aug. 21 report Westlake Police this week. As could reasonably be predicted, a dispute arose over what exactly was agreed to with the 20-year-old Cleveland woman who arrived. She was driven to the scene by a 32-year-old Cleveland man, who collected a $145 fee up front. After dancing in a manner reminiscent of Salome, she either was (or wasn’t) given a $100 tip, which then either was (or wasn’t) taken back by the lonely guy. The dancer then either demanded (or didn’t) a framed picture of an elephant as compensation. The caller also supposedly requested (or didn’t) some sexual contact. The female and her driver were sent on their way; the prosecutor will rule on a possible Menacing charge, due to the threats made by both sides during the encounter.
