An Oklahoma City man accused of acting as a pimp for two underage girls was arrested last month, police said.

Oklahoma City police arrested Kevin Alando Martin II, 29, on complaints of harboring a runaway, lewd or indecent acts or proposals with a child, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and offering to transport a child for the purpose of prostitution.

A woman, whose name wasn’t released, told police on June 17 that her daughter had called her saying that her pimp had beaten her and another girl. The woman said her daughter had run away and she hadn’t heard from her in some time.

When officers arrived at the apartment complex where Martin lived, they found the girl sitting in a stairwell. The girl told officers she and another girl had been with Martin for about three days, and that Martin had been acting as a pimp for the other girl for some time.

The girl told police Martin offered to act as a pimp for the girl several times, but she refused. When Martin offered to take her out of the city for prostitution, she was afraid and called her mother, she said.

Martin was booked at the Oklahoma County jail and released June 21 on $34,000 bail.
