A man and woman were each arrested in connection with prostitution after the man reported their encounter to Surfside Beach police when he became concerned about his lost house key.
Lillian Michelle Henderickson, 24, of Surfside Beach is charged with prostitution; lewdness, assignation and prostitution generally, according to J. Reuben Long Detention Center records.
Hisrav Nasritdinov, 56, of Rock Hill is also charged with prostitution; lewdness, assignation and prostitution generally, jail records show.
At about 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nasritdinov went to the Surfside Beach Police Department, on Pine Drive off U.S. 17 Business, and told an officer that he met a woman named “Brandy” — later identified as Henderickson — through a Craigslist advertisement and paid her $70 for sexual acts, according to a police report.
Nasritdinov said he exchanged text messages with “Brandy” who told him to meet her at an apartment building on the 700th block of Sixth Avenue South in Surfside Beach, police said.
Nasritdinov said after his encounter with “Brandy,” he realized he didn’t have his house key and became worried. He said he texted “Brandy” about his missing key, but she said she didn’t have it, so Nasritdinov thought police may be able to help him get his key back, authorities said.
Authorities went to the apartment building and asked a man who answered the door if Henderickson was there, and he told them she had gone to the store, according to the report.
Police asked the man if “Brandy” and Henderickson were the same person, and he initially said he didn’t know, but then later told authorities they were, officers said.
The man continuously told police Henderickson wasn’t there, but she eventually came to the door, authorities said.
Initially, Henderickson told police she met Nasritdinov on Facebook and that they were just friends. She told police he gave her money, but not for sexual acts. She later told police he didn’t give her any money, according to the report.
She told police her Craigslist ad was just for casual encounters. Police said she later admitted that she does exchange sexual acts for money at the apartment building, according to the report.
Police placed her under arrest in connection with prostitution and arrested Nasritdinov while he was at the police station.
Authorities noted in the report that a warrant will be presented to a judge for the arrest of the man they spoke with at the apartment for interfering with a police investigation and running a house of prostitution.
