TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

ASU police are warning students that human sex traffickers are attending college parties and other campus events.

The suspects are reportedly going to the parties to recruit or coerce females.

Police say their efforts include photographing students or getting them into compromising situations.

The traffickers then use threats of force or exposure to force the victims into prostitution.

ASU police offer these tips to avoid becoming a victim:

  • Look out for your friends
  • Practice safe social media habits
  • Trust your instincts to avoid compromising situations
  • Use proper personal safety measures in unfamiliar surroundings 

If you have information about this or have been a victim, call 480-965-3456.
