A Hanoian was arrested Tuesday for allegedly facilitating prostitution by connecting "sugar babies" with "sugar daddies."


Ha Trong Thang, 28, will be investigated for his activities, Cau Giay District police said.


Initial investigations show that without a stable job, Thang produced idea of pimping to make money. In June, he formed a Facebook group called "Sugar baby Hanoi" to recruit sex workers and connect them with "sugar daddies."


Those who wished to use the service would contact Thang through a phone number on social media according to VN Express.


Thang collected personal information from sex workers including their names, addresses, other jobs, and pictures before sharing it with chosen clients.


He was also the go-between for agreements between the "sugar daddies" and "sugar babies."


He collected VND1 million ($44.23) each from the sex workers and VND2 million each from clients.


Prostitution is treated as a social evil in Vietnam, where sex workers can be fined and sent to education camps and pimps face criminal punishments.
