17-year-old Antioch girl escapes forced prostitution

A 17-year-old Antioch girl managed to escape a man who she says forced her into prostitution.

The 20-year-old man accused of kidnapping her and turning her into an escort, Chester Brown, is now under arrest and in jail in Stockton facing serious sex charges. Police are now looking into the possibility there may be more victims.

The teen texted her father, claiming she had been kidnapped, forced into prostitution and was brought to a Motel 6 in Stockton. She also called 911 from the Motel 6 and police were able to find her.

The teen said she met Brown in Antioch after running away from home and was forced to create her own profile on the escort service website MyRedBook.com and sell her body for sex.

While police were rescuing the Antioch teen authorities say Brown came back to motel and in his car were three more girls, two 14-year-olds and a 16-year-old.

One of the 14-year-olds was a missing person out of San Francisco and had a warrant for her arrest. She was teaching the other girls how to become prostitutes.

Investigators say Brown acted as their pimp and in car they found a how-to instruction book on pimping.
