Two adults and a minor charged with human trafficking in Ontario

On March 21, 2017, York Regional Police charged three people, including a 17 year old minor, with human trafficking after police responded to a 911 call from the victim in the town of Georgina, about 80 kilometers north of Toronto, reported the Toronto Sun.

Ahmed Sheikh, 26, of Richmond Hill is facing 12 charges, among them trafficking in persons, kidnapping, forcible confinement, sexual assault, trafficking cocaine, breach of probation and overcoming resistance by attempting to choke, suffocate or strangle another person. Ali Gulud, 45, of Montreal, is charged with forcible confinement, sexual assault and trafficking in persons.

A 17 year old who can’t be named under the Yong Offenders Act, is facing charges of trafficking, forcible confinement and sexual assault.

After receiving a 911 call from the victim and successfully determining the location where she was held against her will for the purpose of prostitution, police were able to arrest the suspects.

Police have released photos of the accused adults and are appealing for any additional victims to come forward. Anyone with further information is asked to contact the York Regional Police Human Trafficking Team at 1-866-876-5423, ext.7817, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
