Human trafficking arrest in Laurel

By Washington Post editors

For the second time this week, police have arrested a man at a motel in Laurel who's accused of kidnapping a young woman and forcing her into prostitution.

Anne Arundel County police say 23-year-old Gabriel Dreke-Hernandez of Hyattsville was arrested Wednesday night. Officers found the 19-year-old victim, who told police that Dreke-Hernandez had kidnapped her from a party in Prince George's County and forced her into prostitution. She says he assaulted and threatened her.

Police say there's no evidence that the woman had worked as a prostitute before her encounter with the suspect.

Police also found a 16-year-old girl at the motel who had been advertised on the Internet as a prostitute. Dreke-Hernandez is charged with human trafficking and related counts and could face additional charges.

Scumbag is most likely an illegal too. Deport the animal, better yet shoot him like that 14 year old. Go Border Patrol.
