Kamau Curnal and Aaron Barnes: FBI says two ‘terrifying’ men indicted for sex trafficking could be in Seattle area



The FBI is asking for help tracking down two men charged with sex trafficking who might be in the Seattle area.

Aaron M. Barnes, 33, and Kamau Curnal, 28, are both charged with one count of sex trafficking of a child and one count of transportation of a minor for the purpose of prostitution following an investigation in Oregon.

An indictment alleges that Barnes and Curnal drove an underage victim from Portland to Seattle as part of a trafficking operation.

The FBI said both men have extensive ties to Seattle.

“Kamau and Aaron are believed to be ‘armed and dangerous’ and given their gang affiliations, anyone who has information about them, we’re asking them to call law enforcement right away. Do not approach them, move out of the vicinity of them,” says Ayn Sandalo-Dietrich with the FBI. “These are bad guys, because they’re somebody who convinced a minor to travel across state lines and engage in prostitution. They’re manipulative, they’re terrifying and we need to get them off the street.”

Barnes is 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds with quite a few tattoos, including one on his arm that says “sleepless.”

Curnal is 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds.

Both men are black, with black hair and brown eyes.

Both are considered armed and dangerous. If you know where they are, call the FBI at: (206) 262-0460
