Three Suspects Arrested on Sex Trafficking Charges
Adrien Montrel Louis, 25, and Coby Dewayne Daniels, 26, and Donavon Javonte Knight, 26, were arrested this month and charged with sex trafficking. Daniels was also charged with sexual assault of a child. All were arrested at various locations.
Frank Roberts III, 26, is currently at large and wanted in connection with the same case. Roberts, a Katy resident, is wanted on charges of child trafficking and sex performance by a child. Roberts was initially arrested for sexual assault of a child in February, following an outcry from a 16-year-old runaway found in a Katy apartment. Roberts posted bond at the time, but new information uncovered in Precinct 5’s investigation led to charges of child trafficking against all four men.
"Roberts was initially arrested at his apartment in Katy. He was charged with sexual assault of a child at the time," says Robert Henslee, Media and Public Relations with Harris County Constable's Office, Precinct 5. "After speaking with the victim and looking into the case further, our investigators learned that she was a victim of sex trafficking and charges were filed against all four. Roberts has not been found yet."
