FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The first hearing in a Fort Wayne man’s child prostitution and rape case is set for Wednesday.

29-year-old Patrick Javon Davis is charged with promotion of human trafficking of a minor, sexual misconduct with a minor, promoting prostitution, and rape when compelled by force.

Late last month, Davis was on his way to Ohio when Fort Wayne officers found his vehicle illegally parked on Winter Street, according to court documents obtained by the Journal-Gazette. Inside the vehicle, officers found a young woman with a lot of makeup on sleeping in the backseat.

Davis helped the victim write a good-bye note to her parents before she ran away with him on March 28, according to court documents.

That night, Davis and the girl were at a house when he woke her up and consoled her. He told her everything was going to be OK but then he raped her, she said in court documents.

The girl was sent to a juvenile center, where she told officers what happened. Davis was booked into Allen County Jail.

To learn more about what happened on the day the victim ran away, read the story by the Journal Gazette.
