A Lindenhurst man was arrested Tuesday after police say he held two females, one just 15-years-old, against their will and forced them "to engage in acts of prostitution."
Suffolk County Police, in conjunction with the Suffolk County Probation Department and the FBI, executed a search warrant at 258 North Greene Ave. in Lindenhurst Tuesday and officers and agents discovered the teen, who had run away from home, and a 21-year-old woman in the residence.
The two were being held against their will by Andy Gayot, who lived at the residence, police said.
Gayot, 35, was charged with three counts of promotion prostitution and one count each of compelling prostitution, third degree rape, third degree criminal sex act, unlawful imprisonment, third degree criminal possession of a weapon and fourth degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. He also faces other unspecified felony and misdemeanor charges, police said.
Gayot was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Central Islip.
