Two Cincinnati men face federal charges alleging they transported individuals across state lines to engage in prostitution.
Anthony Lee Brown, 48, and Christopher Combs, 25, were indicted on Thursday under sex trafficking charges.
Brown and Combs used a “facility of interstate commerce to coerce and entice individuals to engage in prostitution” from Oct. 7 through Nov. 18 of last year, according to the indictment.
The men were arrested on Nov. 18 during a raid at a Price Hill home in the 1000 block of Consodine Avenue. The home was used to allow people to engage in sexual activity for hire, Hamilton County court documents state.
Both Combs and Brown were allegedly making money from the prostitution operation, which crossed from Ohio into Kentucky and other areas, officials said.
The FBI worked with Cincinnati Police in the investigation.
