Two San Antonians have been arrested on suspicion of compelling prostitution of a minor, according to arrest warrants.

Sarah Rhodes, 19, and Robert Salazar, 18, were allegedly two members of an operation that trafficked a 16-year-old girl for sex and drugs, according to the warrants. Both Rhodes and Salazar, who were arrested Aug. 2, have been charged with first degree felony compelling prostitution, while Salazar has also been charged with possession of child pornography. There are at least two other suspects involved with the case, according to police, but their identities haven’t been released.

Texas Department of Safety investigators, with the help of the San Antonio Police Department, discovered the operation, which dates back to late May. That’s when Rhodes and Salazar, along with third suspect Julian Trevino, 19, allegedly took the 16-year-old, homeless girl off the streets and put her to work as a prostitute.

Both Rhodes and Salazar denied knowing the girl, the affidavit states.

According to the warrant, the group kept the girl in a house in the 1700 block of West Mistletoe Avenue, regularly gave her methamphetamines and Xanax bars, and posted pictures of the girl on social media sites to attract potential clients. The group would also send the girl to walk the streets in search of clients, and sent her to have sex with multiple men at the Mid Towne Inn and Suites, the warrant said.

DPS officials have returned the girl to her mother, while Rhodes and Salazar are being held on $30,000 and $75,000 bond, respectively.
