On Thursday April 27, 2017, the Portland Police Bureau's Sex Trafficking Unit, in partnership with the Beaverton Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Child Exploitation Task Force, arrested two men and rescued a juvenile female victim in a sex trafficking investigation.

22-year-old Tre Quane Jenkins and 20-year-old Antonio Jaray Moore were arrested and booked into the Multnomah County Jail on a charge of Compelling Prostitution. A 16-year-old female sex trafficking victim was reunited with her family.

This investigation started several weeks ago and during the course of the investigation, officers located the victim at a residence in the 8500 block of Southeast Steele Street.

On Thursday, investigators arrived at the residence and made contact with the victim and safely removed her from the home. Three other subjects, including Jenkins and Moore, remained inside and refused to come out to officers. After approximately 10 minutes, the subjects came out and were taken into custody without incident. Jenkins and Moore were eventually booked on criminal charges while the third subject was released from the scene. A firearm was seized by police during the investigation.

This investigation is ongoing and officers would like to hear from anyone with information about this case.

Sex trafficking and prostitution are not victimless crimes. Victims of sex trafficking and prostitution are forced, coerced, and manipulated into this lifestyle against their will. They are forced to suffer through physical, sexual, and mental abuse. The Portland Police Bureau, in conjunction with other Federal and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to deterring prostitution and sex trafficking activities.

The Bureau also works with community organizations like Lifeworks NW to help sex trafficking victims: https://www.bja.gov/programs/supporting-victims-of-sex-trafficking-in-Portland.html
