Captured: Katy man wanted in horrific child sex trafficking case is in custody

Frank Roberts III and three other suspects are accused of taking turns raping a 16 year old as they moved her from motel to motel.

KATY, Texas — An accused child sex predator from Katy is back behind bars after his arrest in Washington County. 

Frank Roberts III was wanted in a horrific child sex trafficking case.

Roberts was originally arrested back in February after a 16-year-old runaway told investigators he sexually assaulted her at his Katy apartment after she met him at Greenspoint Mall.

Roberts was charged with sexual assault of a child and released after posting a $30,000 bond.

Precinct 5 investigators later uncovered evidence of child sex trafficking that implicated Roberts and three other men.

Constable Ted Heap said multiple men took turns sexually assaulting the 16 year old victim before she escaped.

“All of the suspects drugged the victim with an assortment of drugs, ranging from marijuana, Xanax and possibly even heroin," Heap said.

Additional charges were filed against Roberts, including child trafficking and sex performance by a child, but deputies couldn't find him. They released his photo Tuesday and hours later, Roberts was arrested.

Three other suspects had already been arrested.

Coby Dewayne Daniels, 26, is charged with child trafficking and sexual assault of a child.

Adrien Montrel Louis, 25, and Donovan Javonte Knight, 26, are charged with child trafficking.

Knight is a local rapper who goes by the name of “Dono,” according to Heap. He has worked with the pep rally music act called High School Takeover. The group has performed at several Houston-area schools in HISD, Aldine, North Shore, La Marque and others.

Deputies say they have no evidence Donovan tried to recruit potential victims at those schools, but they are concerned. Heap said those schools have been notified, as a precaution.
