Fayetteville man arrested on charges of prostituting teen
A 20-year-old Fayetteville man with a slew of outstanding felony charges is wanted for kidnapping a 13-year-old girl and selling her into sexual servitude, Cumberland County authorities said Saturday.
A tip from a person who saw Kadeem Kirk's mug shot in the local news led police to arrest him at his grandmother's house in Fayetteville Monday morning, said Debbie Tanna, a spokeswoman for the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office.
Kirk, 20, of 5719 Meharry Drive, was given a $1.9 million bond on 23 felony charges, including second-degree kidnapping, facilitating the prostitution of a minor and conspiracy to prostitute a minor.
Investigators said Kirk took the teen from her home to a local motel, forced her to have sex with five men and gave her money and drugs.
