Moorhead police charge two with sex-trafficking a 13-year-old runaway

Email

MOORHEAD, Minn. — It took just 12 hours.

Moorhead Police Detective Ryan Nelson responded to a suspicious online ad for an “escort” at a south Moorhead motel Wednesday afternoon.

Just a half-day later, police arrested two suspects in Fargo on criminal charges of prostituting out that so-called escort – a 13-year-old runaway from Brooklyn Center, Minn., who allegedly was brought to the area by the suspects.
