01-May-2013


The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office issued warrants on Monday, April 29, 2013 on a north county man for sexual trafficking covering a three-day period earlier this month. Anton M. Morris, 39 years of age, of the 11600 block of Fox Hall, St. Louis, Missouri 63033, was charged with two counts of Sexual Trafficking of a Child (Class A Felony) and one count of Trafficking for the Purposes of Sexual Exploitation (Class B Felony). A $100,000 cash only bond was issued. A photo of Morris is attached.

The charges were issued after officers from the St. Louis County Police Department's North County Precinct responded to a call in the 6500 block of Dallavis from a female claiming she and two other female acquaintances had been held captive and forced to perform sexual acts. Officers contacted two females, ages 17 and 19, who reported they had escaped through a bedroom window of a nearby residence where they were held against their will by Morris, adding that he was still holding a 16 year old girl at his residence for the purpose of sexual exploitation. Officers responded and arrested Morris at his home, where they also found the 16 year old girl.

Morris enticed the girls into performing sexual acts for money after he rented them a St. Louis County area motel room and advertised sexual encounters for money with the three girls through various social media outlets. After three days of such acts, he took the girls to his residence on Fox Hall. When Morris later fell asleep, two of the three girls escaped and called the police.
