FBI asks public’s help in probe of alleged sex trafficker

The FBI is asking the public to help with its investigation of a Buffalo man accused of sex trafficking underage girls.

The agency is seeking more information about Robert Pritchett, 20, and his alleged victims. Pritchett was arrested Wednesday and charged with production, receipt and possession of child pornography and sex trafficking of minors.

Members of the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force said Pritchett met his potential victims on social media, including meetme.com, and relied on a number of aliases. They include James Heart, James Cooper, James Matthew, Tyler Games, James Allen, Jamez Tommy, Gabriel Michaels, Jess Allen, Thomas Allen, Matthew Allen, James Church, Faith Anderson and Max Heart.

Pritchett is charged with sexually assaulting and raping a 15-year old girl and forcing a 17-year old girl into prostitution. He is currently in custody.
