A Naperville man faces federal sex-trafficking charges, accused of forcing women into prostitution from his townhouse.

Benjamin Biancofiori, 36, was arrested Wednesday in Colorado, according to the U.S. attorney’s office, which said he promised women financial security to perform sex acts for money but kept most of the money and beat the women.

Prosecutors said he posted advertisements on Backpage.com and arranged for women to travel to meet clients around the Chicago area and, while traveling the past several weeks, posted similar advertisements in Phoenix and Denver.
