Man calls Solihull police to complain about pro5titute's looks
A man has been warned after he dialled 999 to complain about a pro5titute's looks after meeting her. West Midlands Police said they were contacted by the caller who said he "wished to report her for breaching the Sale of Goods Act".
The force said the call was received at about 19:30 BST on Tuesday complaining that the woman was not as attractive as she had claimed. Officers have now sent the man a letter warning him about wasting police time.
West Midlands Police said the man had claimed he met the woman in a hotel car park. "The caller claimed that the woman had made out she was better looking than she actually was and he wished to report her for breaching the Sale of Goods Act," a spokesperson for the force said. "When he raised this issue with the woman concerned, she allegedly took his car keys, ran away from the car and threw them back at him, prompting him to call police." During the call, the man can be heard to say: "I've arranged a meeting with her, but beforehand I've asked her for an honest description, otherwise when I get there I'm not going to use her services. Basically she has misdescribed herself, misrepresented herself totally. She was angry because she obviously thinks I owe her a living or something."
Sgt Jerome Moran, based at Solihull police station, called the man back to offer some advice.
He said: "It was unbelievable - he genuinely believed he had done nothing wrong and that the woman should have been investigated by police for misrepresentation. I told him that she'd not committed any offences and that it was his actions, in soliciting for s*x, that were in fact illegal."
