TUCKER, Ga. (AP) — A man has been accused of holding two women against their will and forcing them to have sex with men inside a Tucker hotel.

Citing a police report released Monday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution says DeKalb County police were called to the hotel Wednesday by one of the victims’ mothers.

Inside, one of the women told investigators 28-year-old Milton L. Henry made them have sex with men for money. She says Henry had held a gun to their heads and would beat them if they mentioned leaving.

In the report, the officers say the women were scared for their lives. One of the women says she had been with Henry three or four weeks. It wasn’t clear how long the other woman had been.

Warrants issued for Henry’s arrest say he threatened to shoot up their families’ homes if they left him.

Henry is facing multiple charges, including human trafficking. Online jail records do not indicate whether he has an attorney.
