Agents with the Department of Homeland Security (HSI) in Arizona coerced suspected human trafficking victims to perform sexual acts on them during a three-year investigation that later collapsed after the officers’ conduct became publicly known.
The investigation—dubbed ‘Operation Asian Touch’— saw federal agents pay for and receive at least 17 sexual acts from ‘Asian females’ working in eight different massage parlours in Mohave County, over a five-month period in 2018.
The sex-trafficking probe began in May 2016 after Havasu police received complaints that local massage parlors were offering erotic extras to their foot and back rub services. The HSI were called in by police in 2018 following suspicions the women might be victims of human-trafficking.
