LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock man could be heading to trial to face charges of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated promotion of prostitution.

A grand jury indicted 37-year-old Alberto Rivera this week.

The promotion of prostitution charge dates back to November 27, 2012 and the kidnapping allegedly happened on April 15, 2013.

Legal documents show police arrested Rivera in May of last year on unrelated charges. But, according to his arrest warrant, one of the victims was reluctant to speak on record because she was afraid for her life.

Rivera is accused of abducting a woman and holding her ransom for meth and $100.

The warrant says Rivera had her neck zip-tied to the seat of his vehicle and held her at gunpoint.

It says when Rivera got his money and drugs he let her go.

One of the victims told police he had six women working for him as prostitutes, and that Rivera had a history of restraining people with zip ties.
