STAMFORD, Conn. — A Stamford man has been charged with running a prostitution ring out of a city hotel, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Police told the Stamford Advocate that 41-year-old Otis Campbell had rented two rooms at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Summer Street and advertised prostitution services for two women. Campbell had previously been arrested in 2015 for similarly running a prostitution operation at another hotel, and the Stamford Advocate reported that he was on probation for those charges.

The investigation into Campbell started in April when the 18-year-old's mother told police that her daughter was being held against her will at the hotel, according to the Stamford Advocate. The daughter had contacted her mother after getting in a fight with Campbell and the other woman involved in the prostitution ring, the Stamford Advocate reported.

Police spoke to the 18-year-old, who said that Campbell had brought her to Stamford from Harlem for prostitution purposes, and that she had been forced to have sex with several different men, according to the Stamford Advocate. Police told the Stamford Advocate that it was unclear if she was being held against her will.

Campbell was charged with promoting prostitution and held on a $250,000, while the other woman involved, 26-year-old Brittany Howard of New York City, was charged with promoting prostitution and possession of narcotics, according to the Stamford Advocate.
