5/21/2010 – Springdale, AR — A volunteer coach at Springdale Central Middle School is accused of luring young women into prostitution.
According to police Christopher Wayne Foster, 27, of Rogers, was arrested by Bentonville police Wednesday and charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault and promoting prostitution.
The investigation began about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday when a 23-year old woman called police and told them she was forced to jump from Foster’s vehicle after he tried to kidnap her and drive away. The woman sustained some injuries from the escape.
The victim told police she had worked for Foster as a personal assistant and that she met with him so he could pay wages he owed her. The victim told police she had quit working for Foster when she learned he was operating a prostitution ring.
Foster was arrested later that night along with two women, ages 19 and 20 that were with him. It was later determined the women were being pimped out by foster as prostitutes.
One of the women said she met Foster after replying to an online classified ad looking for a personal assistant.
The middle school where Foster volunteered as a coach has been contacted by authorities. No word if the school or police think Foster may have tried to recruit or sexually assault any of the students.
Foster is currently being held in the Benton County Jail.
