WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - A 23-year-old aspiring rapper from North Providence has been charged with trafficking 17-year-old girl for sex.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1srwRL7 ) Xavier Sewell was arrested Friday at the Providence Place mall after officers received a tip about a man there carrying a gun.

He was arraigned Monday on weapons charges. Police had been looking for Sewell since June after finding the 17-year-old runaway in a Middletown hotel room. The girl’s mother had called police after seeing her daughter’s photo posted in an ad for an escort service online.

Sewell had been free on bail from a drug charge in Connecticut. He raps locally under the name “X-Man.”
