SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - A Milwaukee, Wisconsin, man was arrested Saturday night for forcing a woman and girl into prostitution in Sioux Falls.
Officer Sam Clemens says 33 year old Thomas Alexander Roberts is accused of bringing the females from Wisconsin on the pretense of partying.
Clemens says detectives were looking into an escort website at an eastside motel when the 24 year old victim ran to them for help. Detectives say Roberts would not let the woman leave and was forcing her to prostitute herself. Roberts kept the money. The girl that was with them was a 17 year old and also from Milwaukee.
Clemens says police found images of the 17 year old on Roberts’ phone and charged him with possession of child pornography.
He's also charged with pimping and human trafficking.
