A man held a teenage girl captive in a Falls Church, Virginia, home in what Fairfax County police are calling a sex trafficking case.
The 17-year-old victim met 27-year-old Manuel Contreras on Facebook several months ago and eventually agreed to meet him in person, police said.
"The man allegedly threatened the teen and locked her in a room and took her phone," Fairfax County police Officer Roger Henriquez said.
Though the girl was missing for more than three months, police weren't aware until someone else who lives at the Kaiser Place house where she was kept.
Contreras is charged with abduction with intent to defile and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
