Man arrested in Fort Myers accused of keeping sex slave

CREATED Oct. 26, 2013
FORT MYERS -- The Lee County Sheriff's Office has arrested a man accused of forcing a woman to engage in prostitution.

The Sheriff's Office says they arrested Saeb Williams, 33, of Baurlein, Texas Friday at a Fort Myers motel after someone called in a complaint.

Investigators say they learned Williams was forcing a woman to engage in sex acts against her will, and he was advertising her services online. They say she had attempted to escape on several occasions, but was caught and beaten. 

Williams now faces several human trafficking related charges and he is in custody at the Lee County Jail.
