A 35-year-old man was arrested after Raleigh police say he kept a hotel room that was used for prostituting a minor.

Joseph Anthony Lewis of Raleigh was charged with promoting prostitution of a minor and human trafficking with a child victim. He was arrested Friday.

Police say Lewis profited from prostitution and advanced it by having a hotel room “while knowingly granting or permitting the use of the place for the purpose of prostitution of a minor,” according to court documents.

Lewis intended to hold a child “in sexual servitude,” his arrest warrant said.
