The Berkeley police arrested 10 adult women and one teen-ager for soliciting for prostitution Saturday.  

The arrests, in response to citizen and business complaints, were all along San Pablo Avenue.  

The minor was a 16-year-old runaway from the south peninsula area. 

No “Johns” patronizing the prostitutes were arrested.  

“The focus this time was on the women,” said Lt. Cynthia Harris, adding, “we do both.”
