Two men arrested in human-trafficking case
Two Maryland men are facing human-trafficking and drug charges following their arrest by Howard County police at the Red Roof Inn in Jessup. Prince Q. Torres, 25, of District Heights was charged with human trafficking, prostitution, assault and a handgun violation. Anthony Kenneth Wilson, 39, of Baltimore was also charged with conspiring in human trafficking as well as drug distribution. On Wednesday, police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn said police got a tip about human trafficking and prostitution at the hotel off Washington Boulevard, where detectives recognized two women from the Backpage website. Backpage is commonly used for prostitution, police said. After watching Torres, Wilson and the two women enter and later leave the room, police said, detectives found out that Torres had posted prostitution ads on the website and took the money they were paid. The women, 28 and 29 years old, were also being physically assaulted by Torres. During the arrest, police said, Wilson was with Torres and had suspected heroin and crack cocaine in his pocket at the time. Llewellyn said both women are receiving assistance following the arrest. Torres is being held without bond at the county jail, while Wilson is held on $100,000 bond. As police continue to investigate prostitution and human trafficking in Howard County,
