CBS - Former NBA All-Star Alvin Robertson is one of seven people facing charges involving sexual assault and sex trafficking of a 14 year old girl. He's accused of forcing an underaged child to have sex with him.

Investigators say the 47-year- old athlete is part of a ring that kidnapped the girl and forced her into prostitution and dancing at a strip club.

Robertson lives in San Antonio but was arrested in Arkansas. His arrest is part of an investigation that started last April.

That's when the teenaged girl waved down a police cruiser and told officers she had been abducted from San Antonio. The girl's parents had reported her as a runaway.

The girl eventually escaped from a 49-year-old Corpus Christi man who was her captor, as he took a shower. He has pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a child.

Robertson's girlfriend, Racquel Mcintosh, and five other men police say are involved, have been arrested in San Antonio.

This is not the first run in with the law for Alvin Robertson. He had been sentenced to 10 months in jail following misdemeanors over fights with a former girlfriend. The sheriff's office says it is unclear when Robertson will be sent back to San Antonio.

Robertson was voted in for four All-star games and spent six seasons with the San Antonio Spurs until he retired in 1996.
