SAN ANTONIO (AP) - San Antonio police have arrested a man who they say prostituted a 16-year-old girl before selling her to a couple.

The San Antonio Express-News reports (https://bit.ly/1qPV9Ca ) the 27-year-old suspect faces a charge of child trafficking. Police say the girl ran away from home in October before ending up with the man. They say he eventually sold the girl to the couple for $50 after he said she owned him that much for a drug debt.

The man and woman who police say bought the girl were charged with human trafficking after their arrests in November. Police say they arrested the pair after they prostituted the girl online.

The couple previously told reporters they didn’t know the girl was underage and were trying to help her.
