Vineeth Ravuri Of Jersey City Arrested For Stabbing Sex Worker
JERSEY CITY, NJ (IANS) – A 26-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly stabbing a sex worker at a hotel here, following a disagreement over money, police said.
Vineeth Ravuri of Jersey City was charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault, criminal restraint, unlawful possession of a weapon, and engaging in prostitution.
The Secaucus Police responded to a woman calling for help from Aloft Hotel at Harmon Meadow Boulevard on April 9.
Officers located a woman in the lobby of the hotel bleeding from the hand, who stated that she met a man at the hotel with the purpose of engaging in sexual activity in exchange for money.
Upon asking Ravuri to leave the room, he brandished a knife and demanded his money back, which the woman refused, the police said in a statement.
Ravuri then lunged at her, and in the ensuing struggle, she received a laceration to her finger and buttocks. He attempted to prevent her from leaving the room, but the woman managed to make her way to the hallway while yelling for help.
She was treated for injuries at the scene.
Police located Ravuri in the lobby of the hotel with blood on his jacket and foot.
He also was found in possession of a bloody knife used in the assault and was subsequently placed under arrest.
“Prostitution is not a victimless crime. Prostitutes are frequently victims of physical and sexual assaults and robbery,” Secaucus Police Chief Dennis Miller said.
“The SPD will continue to conduct proactive operations in hopes of suppressing prostitution, which is often the root of other heinous crimes,” Miller added.
Ravuri is presently lodged in the Hudson County Jail.

He should have been careful when looking for a prostitute or negotiating the price for sex. Some prostitutes will demand money upfront and when given may vanish or refuse to provide service. If vanished living you by yourself, you may feel humiliated and angry. But remember you are doing something that is illegal. So the prudent approach is to go away and learn from this lesson. However, if she demands more money, then you may negotiate based on your budget. Once you get hooked to prostitute, it becomes your addiction. I urge you to control your urge by frequenting places such as library or temple and make friendship with clean people. See if you can find someone to marry as you may have hard time to suppress your urge at your age.April 21, 2023
