A child sex offender forced two teens to have sex at gunpoint then raped one of them, police said. Evelio Espinoza-Erazo, 32, was recently identified by police as the suspect who kidnapped the teens and sexually assaulted them in June in Houston, Texas. Investigators said Espinoza-Erazo abducted the teens as they ate outside a fast food restaurant then drove them to a wooded area nearby. There, he forced the teens to have sex with each other, police said. Afterwards, he allegedly sexually assaulted the female victim. As Espinoza-Erazo assaulted the female victim, he put his gun on the ground, allowing her to grab it and point it at her attacker, according to police. Espinoza-Erazo then fled into the woods and was not immediately found. The girl was taken to the hospital after the attack, according to The Houston Chronicle. Espinoza-Erazo was deported to Honduras two weeks after the DNA analysis identified him as a suspect in the case. However, the charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon were not filed against Espinoza-Erazo until December, leading to questions of whether authorities knew he was a suspect in the case before they deported him.
Ten out of 14 people wanted by police in connection with a case of forced prostitution involving a year-old who was rescued last month were detained in a series of raids carried out at 14 spots in Ayutthaya Wednesday, police said. The operations were carried out as part of a suppression drive against transnational gangs operating in Thailand, said Pol Maj Gen Surachet Hakphal, acting deputy chief of the TPB.
Police are tracking down four other suspects still at large who are identified as customers who bought sex from the teenager. She was forced into prostitution by a year-old female pimp, Pawina Thongchuea, who is a younger sister of the girl's stepfather, Pol Col Arun said.
Among the four still on the run is an unnamed police lieutenant attached to the Ayutthaya provincial police who is currently on leave, Pol Col Arun said. Of the 10 suspects detained Wednesday, one was an engineer at the office of the Ayutthaya municipality and the son-in-law of a local politician, Pol Col Arun said, adding most of the suspects had admitted to the crime of taking the minor away from her guardians. Mr Thanawat is facing an additional charge of rape because the year-old girl had previously told the investigators he had raped her before Ms Pawina forced her into prostitution, Pol Col Arun said.
Last month, the year-old mother of the girl sought help from the Pavena Foundation for Children and Woman after she had learnt from her daughter that she had been forced by Ms Pawina to sleep with customers for money for about seven months.
The daughter said she was beaten by Ms Pawina when she refused to follow her orders. The girl was left by her mother to stay with the family of her new husband. The husband has now been arrested in a drug case, said the foundation, adding the mother visited her daughter weekly but the girl had only last month confessed to the mother of having been forced into prostitution.
Police last month detained one customer identified as Wichai Phensawat, 61, a retired teacher, and Ms Pawina when they raided an apartment where the pimp took the year-old girl. Ms Pawina was then charged with procuring prostitutes. Mr Wichai denied having sex with the girl.
