A Rockville, Maryland, man has been arrested on sex trafficking charges, Montgomery County police said Thursday.
And they’re looking for additional victims.
Ernest Wilkerson, 32, is facing sex trafficking and prostitution-related charges.
According to Montgomery County police, detectives began an investigation into Wilkerson in December 2021 after a victim said she was sex trafficked by him in October of last year.
Wilkerson was arrested on Jan. 27 near Heartfields Road in Silver Spring, where police said he attempted to pick up a trafficking victim in his red 2009 Cadillac DTS.
According to authorities, he wanted to take her to a hotel to meet with people for “sexual exploitation.”
Wilkerson is being held without bond.
Police think there may be more victims of sex trafficking by Wilkerson who have not contacted them.
Detectives are urging victims to contact the Vice and Intelligence Unit at 240-773-5958.
