AL - 6 Tuscaloosa men charged with rape of 15-year-old; more arrests to come
this is happening way too often, young teen girl held, raped & sexually trafficked into prostitution.
Two Tuscaloosa men were arrested Thursday and charged with the rape and sodomizing of a 15-year-old girl that juvenile investigators from the Tuscaloosa Police Department believe was subjected to prostitution in the area for two weeks in early May.
Thursday‚s arrests are two of six made in the case so far.
According to TPD, reports of a missing person were received on April 30. The missing 15-year-old had been with her father visiting Tuscaloosa but ran away from him and was not heard from for more than two weeks.
On May 18, investigators with the Juvenile Division found the girl and placed her in the Tuscaloosa County Juvenile Detention Center where they questioned her about where she had been and what she had done since her disappearance.
