LAS VEGAS (Las Vegas Sun) -- A Metro Police raid on an illegal brothel Thursday afternoon in the northeast valley led to one arrest, officials said.

Detectives from Metro’s vice section began investigating the brothel, located at 2404 Kirk Ave., after receiving an anonymous tip, said Lou Pascoe, director of the Southern Nevada Human Trafficking Task Force. That location is near Eastern and Washington avenues.

Miguel Barahona, a man found at the home, was arrested in connection with operating the brothel, Pascoe said. One male client and several potential female victims were located in the home as well, Pascoe said.

Authorities have not determined the females’ ages, Pascoe said.

“We’re going to be actively policing any nexus to human trafficking and these illegal brothels,” she said.

Authorities did not release other information, citing the ongoing investigation.
