Austin Residents Shocked to Find Out About Human Trafficking in their Apartment Building

April 9, 2011
Austin, TX -
Residents living at the Harper’s Creek Apartments on E. Oltorf near Parker Lane reacted to a human trafficking arrest at their South Austin apartment complex.

Sylvia Guzman, longtime resident, said that crime has gotten progressively worse in the last 6 months. Once she found out about the seven people being trafficked in her building, she finally decided to move.

“There are a lot of things going on in this area,” said Guzman. “This is probably the scariest thing that I have gone through since I have lived here. To hear people are being kidnapped and held captive here without anyone knowing that is too close to home. That is the scariest part.”

The case involves gang related traffickers. The case is under further investigation.
