Dayton man accused of human trafficking

A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of trafficking in persons after police said a prostitute told an undercover Dayton police detective she was being forced into the act.

Julius J. Glover was arrested Monday at 2141 N. Main St. on the felony, and on a felony charge of promoting prostitution. The Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office approved the charges Tuesday afternoon, according to police.

The 20-year-old woman who made the allegation is not facing any charges since it is believed she was forced into the act, police said.

It is unclear whether other girls were being forced into prostitution but police said Glover allegedly asked an undercover detective on Monday if he wanted “one” of his girls’ services.

“It’s (typically) a hard case to prosecute because victims are reluctant to go through with it,” said Dayton Sgt. Chris Fischer, who oversees the department’s vice squad. “They’re scared.”
