BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - A third man has been arrested in the alleged sexual assault of a Houston-area woman who advertised online to solicit prostitution.

Beaumont police on Wednesday night announced the arrest of a 17-year-old suspect charged with aggravated sexual assault, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery. Two other suspects were arrested earlier on the same counts.

Sgt. Rob Flores Jr. says the victim placed an online ad for prostitution. Police say a meeting was arranged for Aug. 8 in Beaumont, the men had a gun, forced her into a vacant house and sexually assaulted her. She escaped by breaking windows in the home and was spotted naked along a street.

The aggravated robbery count involves the theft of her vehicle and being forced to provide the men with details on her bank account.
