Arrests Made in Child Prostitution Case

By  | 

Two people are in jail following a Nebraska State Patrol investigation involving the forced prostitution of a 14-year old female.

Investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol were provided information of a Craig’s List personal ad offering female companionship in the Kearney area.

On Thursday, April 26, a 35-year old Upland woman was arrested at the Western Inn South motel in Kearney, after she offered an undercover officer the services of her 14- year-old daughter.

A search warrant was served on April 26, at the Upland home of the 35-year old woman, where investigators recovered computers and other electronic devices.

The continuing investigation led to the arrest of a male suspect in Omaha.

Authorities say 28-year-old Alexander C. Rahe, of Omaha was arrested, May 2, without incident at his residence in Omaha. He is being held in the Buffalo County Jail on a charge of 1st degree sexual assault of a child.

The 35-year-old female is being held in the Buffalo County Jail on a charge of conspiracy to commit sexual assault of a child and child pornography.

Her name is being withheld to protect the identity of the 14-year-old child victim.

State Patrol Officers say they believe the forced prostitution had been going on for an extended period of time, and they're still investigating others they believe may have also been involved.
