NYPD detective arrested for using teen girl as prostitute
A New York Police Department detective and a woman who claims to be his wife are accused of holding a 13-year-old girl against her will and forcing her to work as a prostitute.
Det. Wayne Taylor, a 14-year NYPD veteran and his girlfriend Zelika Brown were arrested for forcing the runaway girl to have sex with various men throughout the city.
Taylor is also accused of using his pull as an NYPD officer to protect the operation. Brown is accused of heckling the little girl when she didn't bring home enough money, and she is also accused of abusing the 13-year-old.
Taylor and Brown were both charged with kidnapping, promoting prostitution and endangering the welfare of a minor. They were released late Thursday afternoon.
