PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The FBI is looking for two men charged with sex trafficking crimes.

Aaron Barnes, 33, and Kamau Curnal, 28, are accused of driving a minor victim from Portland to Seattle as part of a trafficking operation. They are both charged with one count of sex trafficking a child and one count of transportation of a minor for purposes of prostitution.

Although the charges stem from alleged criminal activity in Oregon, the men are believed to have extensive ties to Seattle and may be living in that area.

Barnes is also known as Aaron Mekem Barnes, Terrance T. Barnes, Donte Lamont Blackwood and Donte Lomont Blackwood. He is described as African American with black hair and brown eyes. He is 6’3 tall and weighs 240 pounds. He has tattoos on his neck, back, chest, left arm, right arm and right wrist. One of the arm tattoos says ‘sleepless.’

Curnal is also known as Kamau K. Curnal and Kamau Kambui Carnal, Jr. He is described as African American with black hair and brown eyes. He is 5’11 tall and weighs 185 pounds.

Both are considered armed and dangerous. Officials ask anyone who sees them or has information about them to call 911 or (503) 224-4181.
