Baltimore County Police have charged a man in connection with a human trafficking investigation.
On June 20, a Baltimore County Detective with the Maryland Child Exploitation Task Force was working as part of FBI Operation Cross Country. The detective received information that a teenage female that had been reported missing in Baltimore County was involved in an advertisement for an escort on a section of a webpage that is known for the advertisement of human trafficking and prostitution.
The detective, along with another task force member, located the advertisement, contacted the girl, and scheduled an appointment. The girl told the detective that the “donation” would be $200. She arrived at the arranged meeting place in Baltimore County in a vehicle which appeared to be a cab.
Police detained all three persons in that vehicle. One of the persons was the defendant and one was the missing girl from Baltimore County. The girl told detectives that she had met the defendant two weeks ago. The defendant took her to his home in Baltimore City where he stated that he was going to place an advertisement for her online and that she needed to make them money. The defendant provided her with condoms that she was to use with her customers and kept a large portion of the money that she made. She further stated that he was her “pimp”.
The defendant has been identified as 31-year-old Abudallah Hannibal Oakley of the 1600 block of North Wolfe Street 21213. He has been charged with human trafficking and related charges and is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $500,000 bail.
