Prosecutors refile case against pimping suspect
September 01, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

The San Mateo County District Attorney’s office on Thursday refiled charges against a Fresno man accused of forcing a woman into prostitution and then beating her at a San Mateo motel in June.

Shayne Joshua Lusalah, 21, is facing charges of pimping, human trafficking, assault and vandalism. He pleaded not guilty to the charges.

San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Al Serrato said the case was originally discharged on Tuesday, because prosecutors had trouble locating the victim.

Lusalah is accused of taking the woman throughout California to work as a prostitute approximately 15 to 16 times over the span of a couple weeks.

Police said Lusalah took her cell phone, controlled her through fear and kept all the money she earned while prostituting herself. Police said Lusalah arranged many of the dates. Investigators also found a website where Lusalah advertised the woman’s services as a prostitute.

Lusalah was arrested on June 30 after police received a call from a motel about a woman staying there being beaten by her boyfriend.

Police said Lusalah beat the woman after he found her using a phone in their motel room to call for help and get away from him. The woman told police she had met Lusalah a few weeks prior and had been working as a prostitute since.

Lusalah’s preliminary trial hearing is scheduled for Sept. 10.
