SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Detectives say they have arrested a man who worked as a youth soccer coach in Sacramento on suspicion of human trafficking.

The arrest was made in the early morning hours of Christmas Day. The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department says a 17-year-old girl called 911 to report she had been sexually assaulted and forced into human trafficking.
