Three men in Toronto have been charged after allegedly forcing a 15-year-old girl from B.C. into the sex trade.
Now, Toronto Police fear there may be more potential victims.
The investigation began last December, where Toronto Police say a 15-year-old girl travelled from B.C. to visit family in September.
That’s when they say she was introduced to a man and it led down a path where two additional men supplied her with booze and drugs, taken to a hotel and forced into the sex trade industry.
Toronto Police say the teen was told she had to pay off her costs for the trip to the city, and the hotel room, and the men took nude photos of her and advertised sexual services for her on a website.
She worked a period of three weeks around Oshawa, Niagara Falls, and Toronto, having sex with ten or more clients a day.
Eventually, she was able to call police in December to alert them.
The investigation led to the arrest of three men between June 2 and June 6, and police are asking other potential victims to come forward.
20-year-old Ahmadu Ahmed from Toronto faces a number of charges, including trafficking persons under the age of 18, material benefit under 18 years, material benefit from sexual services, trafficking in persons by exercising control, and advertising another person’s sexual services.
20-year-old Maher Saleh and 19-year-old Jerome Laing, both from Toronto, are also facing similar charges.
