DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - Dunwoody police say they busted a sex trafficking operation at a Dekalb County apartment complex.
Police arrested 46-year-old Eric Hall and 27-year-old Afiong Okon and charged them with trafficking a person for sexual servitude, pimping, keeping a place of prostitution and violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act, or RICO.
Police believe they spent at least three to six months running a sex trafficking business out of the Gables Metropolitan Apartment Complex in Dunwoody. According to police, the women involved in the sex acts range were between 18 and 24 years old.
Police say they initially responded to the complex, off Ashford Dunwoody Road, because of a domestic violence compliant. When the officers walked inside the complex they found several items that made them want to investigate further.
“They looked around the apartment and saw a couple of things in plain sight, such as massage tables, to make them think there was something more to the story, so they notified detectives and through a follow-up investigation determined there was prostitution going on,” said Timothy Fecht with the Dunwoody Police Department.
Police say both have been arrested for pimping before.
