A couple coerced women into prostitution after bonding them out of jail, even branding at least two of them with tattoos, according to authorities in Central Florida. Now investigators fear there could be more victims, claiming defendants Joselito Martinez Gonzalez, 34, and Tanya Wurster, 30, were always looking for more.

“Martinez and Wurster have a minor child together and according to testimony, the child was often present in the home while the commercial sex dates were occurring,” investigators wrote.

Agents for the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation, a multi-agency task force among law enforcement in Orange and Osceola Counties, arrested the couple last Wednesday. They are working on identifying more victims, officials said in a statement.

“MBI is asking if anyone has information about other victims or information about the defendants’ criminal acts to contact MBI, Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS, or their local law enforcement agency,” authorities said.
