On Christmas day, a high school soccer coach was placed under arrest for suspicion of human trafficking two teenage girls when he was found in the company of the young women after one of them called the authorities for help.
At nearly 3am on Monday, 911 received a call from a 17-year-old girl who reported that she was hiding from a man in a nearby vehicle who was waiting for her. She claimed that the man, identified as 34-year-old Elan Seagraves, had sexually assaulted her and forced her into prostitution.
The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department dispatched deputies to the scene where they located the girl in the yard, and they found Seagraves parked in a car nearby. They discovered a second teenage girl, also 17, sitting in the vehicle with Seagraves. Authorities posit they are both victims of human trafficking.
