OAKLAND (KRON) — An 18-year-old Oakland man has been charged with rape and human trafficking for allegedly holding a 13-year-old as a prisoner for one month while sexually assaulting her and forcing her to work as a prostitute.
On Monday, Ahmad Daniels, was arraigned in Alameda County Superior Court and charged with performing a lewd act on a child, in addition to having a prior conviction for second-degree robber in 2015.
Daniels is being held at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin on a $600,000.
Oakland police Officer Natasha Coral wrote in a probable cause statement that while Daniels kept the girl as a prisoner he raped her five times, forced her to perform oral copulation two times and forced her into prostitution.
Police found the captive girl on the night of September 29 at an apartment complex in the 800 block of 69th Avenue as they were responding to a fight with people described as “unknown co-defendants”.
Officers searched the residence for Daniels and other victims but could not find them, Coral said.
Shortly before 9:00 p.m., Daniels returned to the complex and was then arrested.
The girl told police that Daniels threatened her with violence if she did not comply with his order that she engage in prostitution, Coral said.
