A 30-year-old man was arraigned on sex trafficking charges at Brooklyn Supreme Court on Wednesday for allegedly recruiting a Hungarian woman to come to Brooklyn and then forcing her into prostitution.

Varkoly Gergo was escorted into Supreme Court Justice Danny Chun’s courtroom in handcuffs to face the indictment charging him with sex trafficking, promoting prostitution, menacing and other charges.

Gergo pleaded not guilty to the charges that accuse him and two others of bringing a Hungarian woman to Brooklyn to eventually force her into prostitution between Oct. 25, 2017 and Nov. 3, 2017.

Prosecutors said she was told she would be giving massages, but when she got to Midwood, Gergo allegedly threatened her with a knife to have sex for money.

He is charged along with Vivien Kalderas and Anita Kun, who were both previously arraigned and held on $50,000 bail.

Chun ordered Gergo be held on $150,000 bond or $75,000 cash bail to return to court on March 29 with his co-defendants.
