Roman Thomas, Miami Pimp, Branded Minor's Eyelid With His Name: Report

A Miami pimp allegedly coerced a 13-year-old girl into prostitution and forced her to get his street name tattooed on her eyelids when she tried to leave, according to the Miami Herald.

Police say Roman Thomas, 26, and Shanteria Sanders, 23, whose chest is also branded with his street name "Suave," took provocative photos of the girl and advertised her on, reports NBC 6.

After one encounter with a john, Thomas reportedly beat the teenager when she provided less money than the agreed-upon charges, the news station reports.

That's when she threatened to leave, according to CBS Miami, so Thomas and Sanders took her to a Liberty City flea market to have "Suave" tattooed on one of her eyelids and "House" on the other.

Thomas and Sanders face charges of human trafficking, false imprisonment, lewd and lascivious exhibition and delivery of a controlled substance to a child. Thomas's bond is set at $35,000 and Sanders's at $32,500.
