Six men from various parts of the Valley were arrested in an undercover child prostitution sting conducted by Scottsdale police.

Court records show that the six men paid anywhere from $60 to $120 for the services of a 16-year-old prostitute. Two of the men told police it was not their first time and one said the teen was not the youngest person with whom he'd had sex.

Scottsdale police put out escort ads on, with several men answering the ads looking a sexual encounter with girl they knew to be 16 years old.

The operation was set up on April 8 and 9 at a hotel near the Scottsdale airport.

The men agreed to pay anywhere from $60 - $120 for the services of the teenage girl.

All the men have been charged with prostitution with a minor.

The six men are:

Mark Saul Rock, 31 of Scottsdale

Maxim Gregory, 22, unknown place of residence

Haafiz Dubose, 34, of Tempe

Pedro Daniel Mendoza, 33, of Glendale

Jesse Lee Thompson, 21, of Peoria

Carlos Guerrero Rosas, 25, of Mesa
