The alleged victim told police she was part of a "human trafficking prostitution ring" that operated in Portsmouth in October 2011, DuBois said. The deputy police chief said the alleged victim is an adult, and he defined the human trafficking allegation as someone being forced to surrender personal property and/or "more or less held against their will."

Over 110 officials from Finland, France and Belgium took part in the operation on Monday morning.
