Lancaster police said they arrested four men during a prostitution investigation in the southwest area of the city.

Police identified the men as John D. Dagastino, 48; Bertram Davis, 53; Ganga Dhimal, 26; and George Jones, 77, all of Lancaster.

In all four arrests, the men allegedly offered money to a female undercover officer to perform a sexual act, police said.

Each was charged with criminal solicitation of prostitution, a third-degree misdemeanor.

Police said numerous female undercover officers posed as prostitutes during the investigation, which is one of several being conducted in response to complaints from residents and business owners in the southwest area.

The investigations will continue over the next several months.
