Two charged with loitering for prostitution after call for stolen vehicle, police say

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Myrtle Beach police charged two people with loitering for prostitution after a call was placed for a possible stolen vehicle, according to a police report.

Myrtle Beach police responded to a call at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday to 8th Avenue North and North Kings Highway in reference to a stolen vehicle. Officers later discovered the vehicle in a Dollar General parking lot at 2000 North Kings Highway.

Police found Amanda Nicole Wilson, 29, of Myrtle Beach inside the store and detained her, while police brought Ahmed El-asri, 26, also of Myrtle Beach, to the location, according to the report.

Wilson told police that El-asri told her she could use the vehicle for a couple of hours and then pick up him later, according to the police report.

Officers noted that Wilson was a known prostitute and asked her if sexual acts were the bases for the incident. Wilson informed police that El-asri wanted a sexual favor for the use of the car but said she had not done anything.

Due to a strong odor of alcohol coming from Wilson and her demeanor, police placed her under arrest for public intoxication, according to the police report.

El-asri gave police several different statements. He first told police that he gave Wilson a ride, had to stop and use the bathroom in the bushes, and that she took the vehicle without his permission.

Moments later, El-asri said he allowed Wilson to drive the vehicle after he saw her license, according to the report. El-asri told police that Wilson scraped the fender on a curb, pulled it from the vehicle, and when he got out to fix it, she drove away.

Wilson and El-asri were each charged with loitering for prostitution and Wilson was charged with public intoxication, according to the report.
