Twenty-six people have been charged after a two-day prostitution sting in Aurora, authorities said Friday.

Six people -- five women and a man -- were charged with prostitution Wednesday at an undisclosed Aurora address when an undercover officer responded to ads from unnamed Internet sites known for advertising sexual services.

Those charged Wednesday with prostitution include Ashley Lynn Brevig, 25, of the 100 block of Stroble Avenue in Amboy.; Christopher Lee Rosario, 23, of the 700 block of Lewisburg Lane in Aurora; Veleda Ayana Bell, 22, of the 2100 block of Best Place in Aurora; Tetiana Pylypenko, 23, of the 3200 block of North Cicero Avenue in Chicago; Rachel Grace Binkley, 20, of the 3100 block of North Springfield Avenue in Chicago; and Infinity Onyaye Flynn, 20, of the 3200 block of West Lafayette Avenue in Decatur.

Pylypenko also was charged with battery for allegedly throwing a water bottle at the undercover officer during her arrest.

A man who accompanied Flynn to the setup location, 21-year-old Byron Charles Young of the 2100 block of East 68th Street in Chicago, was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon after a pistol was found in his vehicle.
