Wanted: Sostre, Rivera, Makayya

SPRINGFIELD (WGGB) – Springfield Police are on the lookout for three suspects; all have committed similar crimes in the same neighborhood, Springfield’s South End.

“People that live here don’t want to see the neighborhood go down.” Springfield Police Sergeant John Delaney says.

Police say one of the suspects is a well-known ‘john’ in the area, 41-year-old Miguel Sostre. Sostre was arrested after soliciting an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute for sex. Sostre skipped out on his court date. Police say his last known address is on Maple St.

The second suspect is 55-year-old Luz Rivera, a common street-walker police say.

“A street-walker is someone who walks around and offers up sex.” Sgt. Delaney says. “She has a record of prostitution in the past. The detectives one night swept her off the street right before they did an undercover sting.”

Rivera also defaulted on her court appearance. Police say she has known addresses all over Western Mass.

The final of the three suspects is 36-year-old Susan Makayya. Makayya isn’t just wanted on prostitution charges though.. Police say she faces 16 charges, most of which are felonies.

“We’ve been looking for her for quite sometime.” Sgt. Delaney says. “She’s escaping this prostitution charge but that really should be the least of her worries.”

Police say Makayya faces felony charges for writing bad checks and forging prescriptions. Detectives believe she is still in Springfield.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of either Sostre, Rivera or Makayya, send police an anonymous tip to C-R-I-M-E-S or contact the Springfield Police Department directly.
