Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo tweeted Thursday night that he was proud of the work of his vice unit that rescued a 16-year-old from a strip club.

Acevedo said in his tweet that the unit removed her from a horrific set of circumstances and reunited her with her mother. 

KTRK in Houston reported that a judge had ordered the closure of the Fantasy Plaza Caberet. They said that the city urged a judge for a temporary injunction following a string of arrests for crimes that allegedly happened at the strip club, including prostitution.
