Police Searching for Child & Woman Prostitution Ring Leader
ABILENE, TX -- Authorities are searching for a man who allegedly held a teenage runaway for sexual relations and then keeping a woman as a prostitute.
According to KTXS, just before Christmas of 2018 a 14-year-old girl ran away from her home to live with 38-year-old Richard Earl Daniels Jr.
Abilene Police Department is now searching for Daniels after the victim told them the horrid stories of where she had been.
It began by Daniels just giving the child food and a place to stay. Then he began having sex with the child and giving her methamphetamine on a daily basis.
The victim told police that Daniels would force her to have sex with him.
The child was not the only person who Daniels was keeping either. The child told police that Daniels kept a woman there so that he could prostitute her for drugs and money.
Daniels would often threaten the two with knives and on some occasions would hit them with a hammer. The windows were also boarded up in the house.
This man could be in the surrounding area and if you have any information on him contact police immediately.
A $500 reward is being offered for information that leads to his arrest.
