CT sex traffic arrests Bruce Bemer Robert King William Trefzger

Men with mental health issues were delivered to wealthy clients throughout CT as part of a prostitution and human trafficking ring, investigators said.

Danbury police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Bruce Bemer of Glastonbury was charged with patronizing a trafficked person after police said he paid for sex with men provided by Robert King on Danbury.

The ring had been under investigation since January 2016; the first big break came past year with the arrest of Danbury resident Robert King, described by CT prosecutors as running the operation.

William Trefzger, 71, of Westport was also charged with patronizing a trafficked person, but police allege he was also an organizer of the sex ring. A third person, Robert King, of Danbury, was previously arrested during the investigation and charged with promoting prostitution and witness tampering.

The ring is alleged to have delivered the men to these clients throughout CT for the objective of sex for money, authorities said.

Arrest affidavits alleged that King befriended troubled young men, offered them drugs such as cocaine and heroin, and then forced them into prostituting themselves after they had run up a debt, reports the News-Times.

According to the arrest warrant, Robert King, going back approximately 20 years, sought out young men with varying degrees of psychological disabilities for the objective of using these individuals for prostitution.

The arrest warrant naming King said he "sought out young men with varying degrees of psychological disabilities", reports the Courant. The two men recruited young males and delivered them to Bruce Bemer, and others, for prostitution. He allegedly told authorities that King had been sending young men to him for sex for more than 20 years.

Bemer stated that he paid $200-$250 dollars per occasion. This case is being prosecuted by the Danbury State's Attorney's Office.
