LAPD Seeks Other Victims Of Alleged Child Pimp

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police are seeking other possible victims of a man they suspect kidnapped a 14-year-old girl and forced her into prostitution.

Police and the teen's father plan to ask the public for information regarding Leroy Bragg at a Monday morning news conference.

The girl's father claims his daughter was kidnapped after running away and was forced into prostitution. He says the girl left Bragg, but returned to work for him after he threatened to kill her family.

The girl was found last week after Bragg was arrested and charged with recruiting a 13-year-old girl into prostitution. He has pleaded not guilty to human trafficking, crimes involving a minor and an unrelated burglary.

Bragg has not been charged with kidnapping the 14-year-old.
