San Juan, Puetro Rico -

US agents say they have arrested a 63-year-old Puerto Rico businessman on sex-trafficking charges involving a 13-year-old girl.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement accuses Wilfredo Cubero Soto of picking up the girl near her middle school and taking her to a motel in the island's south-west.

The agency said on Wednesday that Cubero previously contacted one of the girl's friends and asked her to recruit underage girls for sex.

Authorities allege Cubero paid the 13-year-old girl $40 at least twice for unspecified sex acts.

It was not immediately clear if Cubero has a lawyer. - Sapa-AP
