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.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
