Man Kidnaps Teen Girl with Mental Disability, Sells Her for Sex: Officials

A Trenton man was arrested after he allegedly kidnapped a teen girl with a mental disability and sold her for sex.

Breion Turner, 26, was arrested and charged with human trafficking, kidnapping and endangering the welfare of a child.

The investigation began earlier in October when a 17-year-old girl, who investigators say has a mental disability, returned to her home after running away a week prior. The teen told her mom she had been kidnapped and held against her will by a man who police later identified as Turner.

Investigators say Turner held the girl captive inside a vacant Trenton home for a week. Turner allegedly made the girl perform sexual acts with several men for money and made around $400 off of her. At least one of the sex acts was captured on video, according to officials.

Officials also say Turner drugged the girl with a drink that she initially thought was cough medicine. The girl told investigators Turner threatened to kill her whenever she tried to leave.

Turner, who has five prior convictions, was arrested and is being held at the Mercer County Jail in lieu of $300,000 bail.
