A Reston man is accused of manipulating a mentally incapacitated 22-year-old woman into prostitution.
Police in Fairfax County announced Wednesday they arrested 31-year-old Robert Moore. They say Moore posted online ads for commercial sex acts by the young woman, transported her to meet clients, and kept the money earned.
They received information on the case May 21, and the Human Trafficking Unit conducted an investigation.
Moore was charged with promoting prostitution, receiving earning from prostitution and unauthorized use of a vehicle.
Since January, the Fairfax County Police Department has been conducting a public awareness campaign called "Just Ask" to combat teen sex trafficking in the region. Officials advise parents, family, teachers and friends to learn how to recognize the signs and symptoms of sex trafficking situations.
Any suspicious activities can be reported to the FCPD Human Trafficking Unit. To learn more, go to JustAskVa.org or call 1-888-3737-888.
