SILOAM SPRINGS (KFSM) — Officers with the Siloam Springs Police Department are investigating a possible sex trafficking incident in one of the city’s public parks, according to a press release from Lt. Derek Spicer.

Police said they reached out to the alleged victim and requested she contact a detective with the criminal investigations division, so that they may further investigate.

A woman posted on Facebook about a recent possible sex trafficking incident in Siloam Springs. That post has been shared over 5,000 times.

Police said they take reports of this manner seriously and encourage anyone who has a similar experience to contact the department at (479) 524-4118.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic/Latin American male, about 35 years old, approximately 6′ tall with black hair that is short on the sides and spiked on top, according to a Siloam Springs Police Department. He was wearing a black shirt with Nike written in lime green or yellow print, blue jeans and shoes.

The other men involved were described as Hispanic/Latin American men in their mid-20s with short black hair. They are believed to be driving a red, late-model (possibly 2016) Chevrolet 1500 four-door pickup truck with a red grill.

The department has currently gathered no other information that supports the theory that the incident is related to sex trafficking.

This incident is an active investigation.
