A Lowell man has been arraigned on charges of running a prostitution ring out of his Lowell home, as well as threatening and physically assaulting three women allegedly working for him, said the office of Middlesex District Attorney Gerard T. Leone Jr. Harold Jack Lucas, 57, allegedly ran the prostitution ring out of his 15 Ellsworth St. home, and offered shelter, drugs, and food to “homeless, drug-dependant women,’’ authorities said. Lucas was arraigned in Lowell Superior Court Wednesday and was held on $50,000 cash bail, said Leone’s office. Lucas is due back in court May 30.
