Cops: Speonk Stabbing Leads to Prostitution Arrest

Also, man charged in connection to the stabbing.

A man with stab wounds and a broken arm who showed up on the doorstep of the Westhampton Beach Police Department earlier in January led Southampton Town police to discover a prostitution operation, disguised as a perfume party in Speonk.

According to Southampton Town police, the investigation led them to North Phillips Avenue in Speonk and resulted in the arrest of a Queens woman for prostitution, as well as the arrest of a Queens man who attacked the victim, who required an extended hospitalization and surgery.

Marco Santos, 26, was charged with assault in the first degree, a felony, and criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor, on Monday after police located him with the help of the U.S. Marshal’s Joint Fugitive Task-Force.

Police said Santos struck the victim with a baseball bat and stabbed him in his torso.

Reina Nieves-Agirre, 41, of Corona, Queens, was arrested on Jan. 5 and charged with prostitution in the third degree, a felony, and obstructing governmental administration in the second degree, a misdemeanor. She was further charged with giving a false written statement, also a misdemeanor.

According to the arrest report, Nieves-Agirre was arrested at police headquarters the day after giving police the false statement, at a North Phillips Avenue address in Speonk. Police said an investigation revealed that Nieves-Agirre was a madame who provided girls to “sell perfume” in addition to a host of other sexual favors that were made available for purchase. She had traveled from Queens to Speonk with two other women to engage in prostitution.

The prostitution ring, police said, provided customer service by traveling to their client's residence.

Detectives are investigating further into the roving prostitution ring.

And now we can't even oprotect ourselves thanks to our clueless president who trying to tell law abiding citizens to give up assault guns and Andrew clueless cuomo wants all clips for guns to only hold seven rounds (bullets). Why seven why not five,ten,twenty. I'll tell you why cuomo already knows what manufacture will be making these clips so he can dump a ton of money in that company. Nobody owns a seven round clip so every gun owner in this country will have to by new clips an estimated two hundred million guns HOLLY #%*+ each gun owner buys ten omg cuomo you and your colleagues sure are smart WAKE UP AMERICANS. Ps why doesn't Obama talk about the black kids getting killed every day in this country ,75% of Murders committed in this country are black killing black and the guns in every case is not registered. Perhaps he should take a hard look at those stats, and make the laws much worse than they are like 50 years for someone who uses a gun in a criminal act. BUT NO LETS GO AFTER THE LEGAL GUN OWNERS. CLUELESS

We are headed for a rude awakening, if this keeps up in the next 10 years we will be similar to a third world country. Watch the documentary " they come to America" by Dennis Lynch. It shows both sides of immigration, theirs and ours. Those interviewed admit they are only here to make money and leave. No wish for the American dream as we are led to believe. There are millions of immigrants , not paying taxes, yet sucking us dry by using or schools, facilities, hospitals, and welfare programs. Our government is running out of money supporting the millions do illegal immigrants. We have employment laws set up to protect us from this kind of problems but no one has the balls to enforce it. Start by going after the employers who hire illegal immigrants instead of Americans. My daughter Vinessa was murdered by an illegal immigrant who was a cold blooded killer before he came into our country, and is now rotting in Singsing, and our tax dollars are paying over $100,000 a year to keep him there.

We need to ask Town Hall why they won't get involved to enforce the laws against these illegals. And tell them that if they dont, then we will get someone who does!
