Little Rock man arrested on prostitution charges

On May 1, Maumelle police arrested John Vincent Ronza, III, 51, of Little Rock and charged him with sexual solicitation.

According to the warrant issued for his arrest, police said earlier this year they “detained a prostitute” in an undercover operation who was offering “happy endings” at the end of a massage.

Police said the prostitute agreed to allow police to use her cell phone to monitor it for unsolicited contact from different “Johns.”

The warrant said Ronza agreed to meet the woman at Red Oak Place in Maumelle for a sexual liaison in exchange for money.

He texted her asking for a “soft touch” she’d mentioned before and reminder her he gets a $25 discount “since the kiddos were running around while I was there.”

He told her they seemed to “click” and he wanted to become a regular.

At the leading of detectives he went into detail explaining the various sexual acts he wanted her to perform.

When he arrived at the Red Oak residence police took him into custody and later obtained the warrant for his arrest.
