"LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - A 14-year-old girl found at a Lake Charles motel had been forced to have sex with numerous men and had been the victim of sex trafficking for around two months, authorities say.
Four people have been arrested, including the girl’s guardian, according to information from Kim Myers, spokesperson for the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Myers says detectives have reason to believe there may be more juvenile victims,
Myers says detectives found the girl at a motel on N. Martin Luther King Highway in Lake Charles on March 21, while responding to a report that the girl, who had been reported as a runaway, was possibly at the location."
"If there’s a public face of the victims of human trafficking it’s usually that of a young teenage girl, but across the country, a new type of victim is increasingly coming to the forefront.
Young boys are increasingly preyed upon and exploited in the sex trade, and advocates are beginning to take notice."
