HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston-area man and his girlfriend have been accused of forcing her 14-year-old daughter into prostitution at truck stops and apartments.

Court documents indicate Reynaldo Alaniz of Pasadena and the girl’s mother are jailed on charges of compelling prostitution and human trafficking, in alleged incidents last summer.

Prosecutors on Monday said both adults were arrested Jan. 26 when a neighbor called police after noticing the girl, who was barefoot and seemed hungry, near a street.

Alaniz has been denied bond. The mother, who allegedly also was a prostitute, faces bond of $60,000. No details were immediately available on attorneys for the pair.

Further details on the girl, who had been living with her mother and her grandfather, weren’t immediately available.

The Associated Press does not identify alleged sexual assault victims.
