South San Francisco police arrest Oakland woman for pimping
August 20, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

South San Francisco police arrested an Oakland woman Sunday for pimping after conducting a sting operation at a local hotel.

Police made a “date” with an escort who was soliciting for prostitution on a website and were directed by the escort to a hotel on Mitchell Avenue. Police made contact with the 24-year-old escort and a second woman. Police found evidence of a prostitution operation in the possession of the escort and then were able to identify the second woman, Angela Denise Gospel, as the escort’s pimp.

Police say further investigation revealed the escort was beaten at least once and repeatedly threatened and coerced into continuing to work as a prostitute for the financial benefit of Gospel, a 25-year-old Oakland woman.

Gospel was booked into county jail on charges of human trafficking and pimping. The victim was provided services by a local resource center that helps victims of human trafficking, according to police.

Since 2011, the South San Francisco Police Department has dismantled seven sex trafficking operations and Gospel’s arrest marks the third human trafficking investigation by the department this year alone.
