GOLDEN, Colo. — Seven people have been charged for their roles in sex trafficking of a 17-year-old homeless girl in July 2014 with two of them still on the loose, the First Judicial District Attorney’s Office said Tuesday.

Cravaughn Lacrae Maloy, 20, and Alicia Sykes, 20, have each been charged with pimping a child, pandering of a child, soliciting for child prostitution, keeping a place of child prostitution, inducement of child prostitution and contributing to the delinquency of a child.

Five men — Zachary Ryan Garrett, 25, Robert Bruce Gordon, 72, Glenn Foster Eugene Cloud, 38, Ephraim Imperial, 51, and James Kyushik Min, 42 — have been charged with solicitation of child prostitution.

The District Attorney’s Office said in a news release that Maloy and Sykes met the teen near a liquor store on West Colfax Avenue in Lakewood in June 2014.

The couple took her in and gave her a place to sleep, but Maloy told the girl she would have to prostitute in order to stay, the arrest affidavit said.

Sykes took photos of the girl in lingerie and posted them to websites in an attempt to solicit men to have sex with her, the affidavit reads.

The girl was provided a prepaid phone card to contact customers who responded to the ad, the affidavit said.  The couple arranged the location and price for each man to engage in sexual activity with the teen.

Sykes, Garrett, Gordon, Imperial and Min have been arrested and have court dates scheduled, the District Attorney’s Office said.

Warrants have been issued for the arrests of Maloy and Cloud, whose picture was unavailable.

Anyone with information is asked to contact local law enforcement.
