A Drexel Hill man has been charged with one count of rape, one count of human trafficking, and other violations in a case authorities said could be "a human-trafficking enterprise."
Kevin Cornish, 42, was arrested Friday after he allegedly tricked an 18-year-old woman into filling out an application for an escort service. She helped authorities find the apartment where he had taken her, Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael J. Chitwood said Saturday.
The woman, who lives in Philadelphia, was looking for job possibilities online on Craigslist, Chitwood said, when she came across an ad seeking home-health workers. The job actually was for an escort service, which the woman learned when she was filling out an application. When the woman protested, Cornish allegedly forced her to take off her clothes, took photos of her, and then raped her.
