Malden man, Lynn woman face US charges of sex trafficking a child by force


A Malden man and a Lynn woman were arrested Tuesday and charged in federal court in Boston in the alleged sexual trafficking of a child and sex trafficking by force, fraud, and coercion, US Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz’s office said. David Minasian, 24, and Madonna Say, 23, allegedly photographed a 15-year-old girl in lingerie posing in provocative ways and posted the photos to an adult section of a website as an advertisement for escort services, Ortiz’s office said. Individuals who responded to the ad were allegedly directed to meet the victim where Minasian and Say were staying with her and to pay to have sex with her, Ortiz’s office said.
