CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The FBI says it rescued dozens of children nationwide, including here in Cleveland, Ohio.

The massive sweep was called "Operation Cross Country", and it saved 105 children.

The Feds busted 150 pimps and others in a three-day sweep in 76 American cities.

Police say in Cleveland one child was found being victimized by prostitution and the pimp was arrested.

Human trafficking is a big problem and our kids are the target. If you need to report an incident call the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center's 24 hour hotline at 855-431-7827.
