Two Sacramento men were arrested Sunday afternoon during a human trafficking sting operation in Santa Rosa, according to police. At about 12:30 p.m., Santa Rosa police officers responded to a report of domestic violence. While investigating the report, they learned about a woman who was being forced into commercial sex trafficking. Detectives were called to take over the investigation, and they found that two women had been brought to Santa Rosa from Sacramento several weeks before to work as prostitutes, according to police. Using information on the Internet posted by one of the women, a sting operation was conducted at a local hotel and three people were arrested.
Glen Harris, 23, was arrested on suspicion of human trafficking and pimping, police said. Jerome Martin, 25, was arrested for allegedly aiding and abetting human trafficking and pimping. They were booked into the Sonoma County jail. A 27-year-old woman was cited for prostitution and released.
