Sex trafficking victim recovering, and her 'pimp' is dead after bizarre fall, police say

Around 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning in northwest Houston, a woman left a club as her pimp harassed her while he followed, according to KPRC-TV in Houston.

A good Samaritan spotted the woman and attempted to help her, but while trying to help, police say the alleged pimp threatened to shoot the Samaritan. Police say the alleged pimp tried to pull the woman out the vehicle when he lost his grip, fell on the asphalt and died.

Upon arrival, police say they discovered a woman who was being sex trafficked from Wisconsin. He allegedly continued to pursue and assault her.

A "good Samaritan" pulled over after he saw the assault and got out of his dark-colored pickup truck to help, Houston police said.

The woman attempted to flee in her would-be rescuer's truck, but the pimp grabbed her hair and started pulling her back out.

Even more freaky, the alleged pimp suddenly died after falling to the ground.

Houston police officer Robert Klementich told the Chronicle the pimp then rose to his feet, stumbled across the street and collapsed on the opposite shoulder.

Police are investigating a freakish scene that has left an alleged pimp dead in northwest Houston.

Police are hoping to talk to the good Samaritan to get a statement about what happened.

The woman had obvious signs of physical assault and was taken to an area hospital to be evaluated, Houston police said.
