ELLICOTT CITY, Md. — Howard County police have charged three people with human trafficking in two unrelated cases.

In the first case, police were called to a fire station on Oct. 3 by a woman who said she had been beaten by her pimp. She said she was forced to have sex with men.

Officers arrested 32-year-old Craig Anderson, of no fixed address, and charged him with human trafficking, prostitution and assault.

In the second case, a woman called police from a gas station on Oct. 4 and reported she had been kidnapped by two people in Rhode Island.

The woman said the couple drove to Connecticut and forced her to have sex with customers.

Twenty-nine-year-old Gary Maddox and 27-year-old Amina Philip, both of Providence, R.I., were charged with human trafficking and other offenses.
