Police in Anne Arundel County, Md., have arrested a man and charged him with prostituting a teenager.

Gabriel Dreke-Hernandez, 19, of Hyattsville, is accused of kidnapping a 19-year-old woman from a party and forcing her into prostitution.

The victim said she was assaulted and threatened.

Dreke-Hernandez was arrested at a motel in Laurel -- the same motel where another man was arrested and accused of prostituting a child earlier this week.

In this instance, 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 woman at the motel, the Associated Press reported. She had been advertised on the Internet as a prostitute.

Dreke-Hernandez is charged with human trafficking and other charges.
