DENVER — Broomfield police have arrested a man who they said coerced a 20-year-old woman to come to Colorado and then forced her to become a prostitute and exotic dancer.

The woman, whose name was not released, contacted police at about 2 p.m. Friday and told them she was being held against her will, said Sgt. Heidi Waltz of the Broomfield Police Department.

The woman told officers she was coerced into coming to Colorado from another state, Waltz said. Police did not say where the woman is from.

Officers were able to find the woman and take her into protective custody. They also arrested a man and are holding him for questioning, Waltz said. Police did not release his name.

Waltz said the woman was living in Broomfield but would not give a specific address until police finished their investigation.
