A man and two women, all from Houston, face charges related to prostitution in the south Texas town of Portland.

According to police, Dandre Woodley, Alexis Sanni and Tyra Forun were found in a hotel with at least three juvenile females, also from Houston. Investigators say two of the juveniles are runaways. One is believed to be the sister of the man.

The group reportedly traveled from Houston last Tuesday and posted on a web site sexually-related services in the Corpus Christi area.

Police say they were tipped off Saturday by a relative of one of the girls, who said they were being held against their will.

Woodley, Sanni, and Forun are all charged with aggravated promotion of prostitution, a first-degree felony.

The case remains under investigation.
