Original release (May 23, 2016 10:34 a.m.):
The Baltimore County Police Department has charged a Baltimore man in connection with human trafficking.
Michael Brandon Osikomaiya (23) of the 3600 block of Lyndale Avenue 21213 has been charged with human trafficking, prostitution, and related charges. He is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $200,000 bail.
In the early afternoon of May 19, the Baltimore County Police Department learned that there was a 16-year-old girl advertising prostitution on the internet. An undercover officer contacted the girl and set up a meeting at a Baltimore County motel. When officers arrived at the motel, they located the girl.
Further investigation indicated that Osikomaiya was her pimp. He was taken into custody as he returned to the motel.
Detectives learned that Osikomaiya was employed as a teacher in Baltimore City. The victim was not one of his students.
The 16-year-old girl in this case is considered a victim and police do not have any plans to charge her at this time.
This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Vice Unit working with the Maryland Child Exploitation Task Force.
The FBI-led Maryland Child Exploitation Task Force (MCETF) was created in 2010 to combat child prostitution, with members from 10 state and federal law enforcement agencies. The Task Force coordinates with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the Maryland State Police Child Recovery Unit to identify missing children being advertised online for prostitution.
