A man accused of turning a Minnesota girl into a prostitute was arrested in Williams County.

Authorities say 21-year-old Samuel Ferraro lured a 17-year-old Minnesota girl to Pennsylvania with a promise to help her find a job. Instead he took semi-nude photos of her and posted her for sale on Craigslist. Ferraro has been charged in Philadelphia on ten different crimes including human trafficking, promoting prostitution of a minor and rape. Prosecutors say Ferraro pimped the girl out to multiple men and kept the money. Ferraro also allegedly forced the girl to have sex with him and threatened to kill her if she didn't comply.

Ferraro was also arrested in Williston August 15th for similar crimes. Court records show he abducted an 18-year-old woman with the intent to use her as a prostitute. Philadelphia authorities say they are concerned there may be more victims.
