Bridgeport Teen Held Hostage, Forced Into Sex Trafficking: Cops

Police have arrested a Waterbury man accused of holding a 17-year-old Bridgeport girl against her will and forcing her into sex trafficking.

Officers arrested Brandon Williams, 34, after responding to the report of an incident at the Sunnyside Inn on Lake Street in Bridgeport early Wednesday morning.

Police said the 17-year-old victim told investigators Williams was holding her against her will and forced her to engage in sex trafficking.

The teen was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital and was listed in stable condition, according to police. She's recovering in the custody of the Department of Children and Families.

Williams was arrested and charged with violating his probation. Bond was set at $50,000, and Bridgeport public safety said Williams will face additional charges in connection with the case.

It's not clear if he has an attorney.
