Police say a Queens teenager has been rescued after being held as a sex slave for months.
The 14-year-old victim had been reported missing by her grandmother several months ago.
The girl told authorities that in November, she met the three suspects - 25-year-old Stephen Garrison, 31-year-old Lindsay Archibald and 23-year-old Quanesha Hunte.
They told her that she needed to choose a pimp to work for, according to officials.
Prosecutors say she was then forced to have sex with men for money.
According to the Queens District Attorney's office, the suspects beat her and threatened to kill her if she ran away.
The teen was rescued on February 3 after she managed to call her grandmother and 911.
The suspects face several charges, including promoting prostitution, criminal possession of a weapon and endangerment of a child.
