• Man arrested in Charlotte on human trafficking charges


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Raleigh police arrested a man in Charlotte for human trafficking.

    Eric Thompson held at least four women in involuntary servitude, according to arrest warrants.

    He's also charged with two counts of assault by strangulation.

    Warrants revealed he would hold the adult women for months at a time starting in November of 2013.

    Investigators still haven't said if Thompson was keeping the women in Charlotte.

    Channel 9 checked and Thompson's current address is in Jacksonville, North Carolina.

    Investigators said Charlotte is a prime spot for human trafficking because two major highways, Interstate 77 and Interstate 85, intersect here and there is a large airport.
