Mobile, Ala. — A man arrested last week in Robertsdale and charged with human trafficking now faces similar charges in federal court.

Documents filed in the Southern District Court in Mobile charge Tee-Henry Wulu Currens with sex trafficking by force, fraud, and coercion.

Currens and the victim were traveling from Jacksonville, Fl. to Mobile on March 1st when the woman escaped at a convenience store in Robertsdale and asked the clerk to call the police.  She claimed she was being held against her will.

The complaint in federal court alleges Currens met the woman in Jacksonville and forced her to have sex with others for money, would not let her leave, would not let her have her belongings and would take her car keys and phone.
