EDISON - An Edison man was arrested in Texas and accused of running a high-priced prostitution ring from his home.
According to the New Jersey Attorney General's Office, 35-year-old Percival Williams, who goes by the street name Knowledge, advertised women's services on a website at prices ranging from $500-$1,000 per hour.
He was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Dallas Tuesday night. His girlfriend, 23-year-old Chantell "Asha" Vaughn, was arrested at 31 Agatha Drive, Williams' home, this morning.
The state alleged Williams' prostitutes worked at hotels in Atlantic City, New York and Las Vegas, as well as northern New Jersey.
Williams is being held in Texas, pending extradition. Vaughn, who is accused of stealing $500,000 worth of diamonds from a client in a New York hotel last April, is being held at the Middlesex County Jail.
Williams is charged with human trafficking, promoting prostitution, receiving stolen property and conspiracy.
