A 17-year-old suburban Dallas boy has been charged with human trafficking after a 15-year-old female schoolmate accused him of holding her captive and compelling her into prostitution.

An Irving police statement says the boy brought the girl to his home, where she remained under the influence of drugs and alcohol for three days. During that time, police said, the boy compelled the girl to become involved in prostitution.

Police also say the boy tried to recruit other young girls into prostitution. Investigators are seeking out those girls and interviewing them to determine if there are any other victims.

The boy remains in Irving city jail charged with human trafficking of a minor, compelling prostitution and sexual performance by a child. Bond is set at $175,000.
