Victoria Nicole Bautista, Dallas, Texas woman arrested for allegedly forcing two minor female relatives in sex trafficking work across hotels over seven month period.
A Dallas, Texas woman has been arrested for allegedly pimping out two young relatives — including a preteen girl — into forced sex with men over several months, according to authorities.
Victoria Nicole Bautista, 29, allegedly trafficked the pair – ages 11 and 16 – from March until the younger girl told another relative what was going on in October, according to an arrest warrant affidavit obtained by WFAA.
The younger girl said the scheme began just weeks after her 11th birthday at a motel in Mesquite, where Bautista forced her and the 16-year-old into sex acts with three men inside a black Mercedes-Benz.
The girls then returned to the motel room where they were staying with Bautista, who demanded the money they received.
The alleged sex trafficking abuse continued at hotels or motels throughout Dallas-Fort Worth for ‘at least every two weeks’ with two of the same men and other perpetrators who joined them, police said. At each time, the minors were forced to engage in repeated sexual services, with Bautista then collecting the financial proceeds from their forced servitude.
The 11-year-old girl told investigators in one October incident, one of the men hitting her in the head, causing her to lose consciousness. She later awoke to find one of the suspects assaulting her.
Bautista — who is facing charges of theft, continuously trafficking a person under the age of 18 and compelling a child under the age 18 into prostitution — was in jail on $201,000 bond as of Monday, records show.
Not immediately clear was the exact nature of Bautista’s familial relationship with her victims and whether the girls’ parents had reached out to police for the presumably missing girls.
