DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- Four weeks after she left home, the mother of a sex trafficking victim called police with a location. It ended with a 28-year-old man behind bars, accused of forcing the woman to have sex with other men.
On Nov. 9 around 11:30 p.m., police went to the America's Best Inn Motel located at 1600 Crescent Centre Blvd., after receiving a call from the victim's mother.
Police said a man named Milton Henry answered the door and initially told them he stayed there alone, but then admitted two other woman stayed with him. He said the women had left to go to the store. Henry then called the woman in question and told her to come back to the motel room to meet with the officers.
When she arrived, police said she seemed frightened. Henry began yelling at her in an intimidating way asking if she was going to leave with the officers. Police said that's when the woman took off running.
They found her across the street at a Waffle House on the ground crying. The woman told them she feared for her life and that Henry would hold a gun to the women's heads, beat them and make their sleep with other men. She also told police she met Henry about four weeks ago and had a gun in her backpack that was inside the motel room.
Henry was arrested and faces multiple charges including human trafficking, aggravated assault and false imprisonment.
