UPDATE: Las Vegas police say that 33-year-old Carl Blackman was arrested for sex trafficking of an adult, one count of kidnapping and one count of sexual assault after a raid on Thursday night.
Police say that they know of one victim, but there could be more.
LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- Police raided a home in the eastern part of the valley for possible sex-trafficking activity.
A SWAT team battered the garage door just before 6 p.m. Thursday at the house on Sandstone Drive near Charleston Boulevard and Nellis Boulevard.
Police said investigators interviewed several adults inside the home.
Jasmine Tobin, who lives a couple of doors away, had no idea her neighbor’s house is under investigation for sex trafficking.
“Oh my god! That’s horrible!” Tobin said. “I’m 19 years old, and I very possibly could’ve been sex trafficked. That’s insane.”
