The men forced the girl to have sex with them and then later "pimped her out" for money. The girl was under the influence of drugs and escaped saying she was feeling ill
At least three men have been arrested for prostitution and sexual assault of a 15-year-old teen in West Side, San Antonio Texas. Police said Rey Hernandez Jr, 28, Korey Acosta, 20, and Alfredo Herrera, 25, were involved in the prostitution of the teen and raping her. The SAPD affidavit report details the track down of the trio.
The victim told the police that she met Hernandez on Facebook. She said she received a ride from him when he took her to a motel, where she was forced to have sex with an individual who was in the room. Shortly after, while Hernandez was still in the room he received a payment from the individual, police said.
Later, she was taken to a different place where she was kept for several days. Hernandez along with other individuals repeatedly raped the teen. The girl after few days escaped from the place when she developed a bad reaction to the drugs and called the police department for help, says a report by KSAT.
The affidavit says, the girl met Hernandez and other men on Facebook and she had met up with Hernandez, who she said gave her a ride to an apartment in the Alazan Courts apartment complex just west of downtown. She kept in touch with the man because he provided her with illegal drugs.
The three other men from Facebook are referred as "Perks Marbach," "T-Pain" and "Coach." According to the affidavit, Acosta is "Perks Marbach," Herrera is "T-Pain," and "Coach" has not been identified. The girl said she took drugs from the men and remained "high" for about four days, according to the affidavit.
The man she called Coach not only forced her to perform oral sex on him but also to have sex at a hotel near Valley-Hi Drive after being dropped off by Hernandez and Acosta, the affidavit states. She said Coach later gave Acosta money for having sex with her when she got back to the Alazan Courts.
The affidavit states that the teen was also raped by Hernandez, Acosta, and Herrera during her stay at the apartment. The girl told the detective she was able to leave them due to her not feeling well after taking the narcotics. The girl said at the residence was where she was forced to comply with the men’s demands due to their aggressive behavior towards her when she tried to refuse, according to the affidavit.
The teen told the detective that Hernandez began prostituting her to men for money sometime last October, and was most recently forced to have sex with Coach. She also said that Hernandez would “count his money in front of her” at the locations where she had sex with other men.
She told the detective that Hernandez and Acosta went as far as “pimping her out” after Acosta was once a paying customer. Hernandez's charge of continuous trafficking of persons is a first-degree felony and if convicted, he faces 25-99 years in prison.
On Thursday, Herrera was charged with sexual assault of a child, a second-degree felony. On Friday, Acosta was charged with trafficking a child, a first-degree felony. Authorities are still collecting evidence and more arrests may follow, San Antonio police said.
