A Philadelphia prostitute who said she did not get paid for her services returned to an East Goshen Township residence to confront a customer with a male associate and a gun, police said.


After the man kicked open the door, police said, and a confrontation ensued, the pair was arrested and charged with prostitution, burglary, weapons offenses, and other counts.

Police on Monday gave the following account:


The woman had called her associate, who was waiting in a nearby parking lot, and the two banged on the door of the residence in the 1800 block of Valley Drive about 5:30 a.m. Sunday, police said.





After the man kicked open the door, one of the two victims inside the residence called police, and the conforntation then was audible at the emergency call center.

One resident overpowered the armed man before the man hit the resident with a fireplace poker. The woman picked up the gun that her associate had dropped and pointed it at the residents. The second resident ran from the home.

The man, identified as Justin Atchison Harris, 36, of East Greenwich Township, Gloucester County, and the woman, Monica Iris DeJesus, 22, of Frankford,  left the home as officers from the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department arrived.

When police stopped the pair’s car, DeJesus said she had been raped, and police started a rape invesitgation. Harris, who was bleeding heavily from his face, was taken to Paoli Hospital.




Police recovered a loaded .45-caliber handgun and property stolen from the residence.

DeJesus and Harris were arrested Sunday and charged with robbery, burglary, prostitution, assault, weapons offenses and related counts.

Unable to post bail, they were in the Chester County jail Monday as they await preliminary hearings on April 19.
