PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Two people are charged with sex trafficking women, one of whom was a minor, for prostitution.

Twenty-eight-year-old Christian Dior Womack, aka “Gucci Prada,” of Chester; and Rashidah Brice, aka “Camille,” a 23-year-old from Chester, allegedly operated a prostitution ring in Philadelphia between May 25, 2012 and June 11, 2012.

The two are accused of recruiting young females to work for them and then threatening them with physical violence in order to keep them working in the prostitution venture.

Authorities say Womack and Brice also created internet ads where they advertised scantily clad women as prostitutes and provided a phone number to call to arrange a meeting.

Womack and Brice are charged with sex trafficking of a minor and sex trafficking by force.
