HOUSTON (1080 KRLD) - Harris County deputies have rescued a 14-year-old girl and other women from human trafficking.

Harris County Deputies received a call about a disturbance at a Super 8 motel. A woman told them she needed a ride to the hospital.

Deputies became suspicious about the situation and began to question other woman at the location. This led them to a room where they found other women, a two year old child and teen. She had been listed as a runaway since February.

Allen Auston faces a number of charges including: human trafficking of a minor, compelling prostitution of a minor, and aggravated promotion of prostitution. He was arrested on the scene and booked into the Harris County Jail.

Constable Investigators took the juvenile to Texas Children's Hospital for a medical assessment, and then transferred her into the care of the Harris County Juvenile Probation Center.
