CBS – Former NBA All-Star Alvin Robertson is one of seven people facing charges involving sexual assault and sex trafficking of a 14 year old girl. He’s accused of forcing an underaged child to have sex with him.
Investigators say the 47-year- old athlete is part of a ring that kidnapped the girl and forced her into prostitution and dancing at a strip club.
Robertson lives in San Antonio but was arrested in Arkansas. His arrest is part of an investigation that started last April.
That’s when the teenaged girl waved down a police cruiser and told officers she had been abducted from San Antonio. The girl’s parents had reported her as a runaway.
The girl eventually escaped from a 49-year-old Corpus Christi man who was her captor, as he took a shower. He has pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a child.
Robertson’s girlfriend, Racquel Mcintosh, and five other men police say are involved, have been arrested in San Antonio.
