Nov. 12, 2016, 7:21 p.m.

Case: 1611-0819

A relative of a female juvenile reported that her niece had been reported as a missing runaway a couple of weeks ago from a group home and had since been kidnapped. The relative stated that she obtained information that the female juvenile was in a vehicle with her abductor and that they were en-route to the Coliseum BART Station. The female victim was confirmed as a listed runaway. Officers staged in the area as the victim communicated with her cousin via text updating of her location. An officer spotted the suspect vehicle at the station and stopped it without incident, taking the driver occupant into custody. The female juvenile victim was also located safe in the vehicle. The female victim was in the company of another female adult in the vehicle. A detective interviewed both females and they both admitted that the suspect intended on driving them to the BART station for purposes of prostitution. All parties were transported to the Lake Merritt Station where the victims and suspect were interviewed by a detective. The suspect was also found to be on parole for pimping. The suspect is to be booked into the Santa Rita Jail for pimping, sexual intercourse with a minor, parole violation, and human trafficking. The kidnapping allegation is unsubstantiated at this point. The juvenile female victim was taken to the hospital for a medical examination.
