HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) — A 19-year-old Burnsville man is charged with forcing his pregnant girlfriend into prostitution.

The woman was arrested at a Burnsville motel by an undercover officer Jan. 11. She told investigators her boyfriend, Javed Mobin, said he would kill her if she ever went to police with information about the prostitution and has beaten and choked her. She told police she was paid $250 an hour for sex.

Authorities tell WCCO-TV (http://cbsloc.al/yL0Pil) they traced an escort ad phone number to Mobin and also saw him loitering near the motel. He was arrested at Prime Rate Motel in Burnsville where the couple had been living. He's currently in the Dakota County Jail.
