Teen turns in 3 men in suspected human trafficking ring

FRESNO, California -- Three men were arrested Sunday evening for their alleged roles in a suspected human trafficking ring in southern California.

Police arrested Brian Lewis, Dashawn Jackson and Dameon Howard following a tip from a 17-year-old through the human trafficking hotline.

She told investigators that she was held against her will for three days and was forced into prostitution in San Diego County before arriving with the suspects in Ventura. That is where she managed to escape.

The victim led police to the suspects' hotel room, where they were arrested.

All three men are now facing human trafficking charges.
