Police Rescue Second Human Trafficking Victim

A Mississauga man is facing additional human trafficking charges after police discovered a second woman allegedly being prostituted in London and across Ontario.

Anthony Greenham, 28, was initially charged after London police rescued an 18-year-old human trafficking victim from a Dundas St. hotel in London on November 17. Investigators say she had responded to an ad Greenham posted offering money for sex work, then Greenham started taking all her money and trafficking her in London, Burlington, Mississauga and Thunder Bay.

Police say the second victim has been trafficked by Greenham since April 2013. Officers had first contacted the girl in October of 2013 to offer her support, but she did not leave the sex trade until April of 2014. The girl had been trafficked in motels in Windsor, Sarnia, Chatham, Guelph, Burlington, Mississauga, Brampton and London.

Greenham now faces the following charges in relation to the second victim:

  • Trafficking in persons
  • Receiving financial benefit from trafficking in person
  •  Procuring illicit sexual intercourse
  •  Procuring person to be a prostitute
  •  Exercise control of a person for the purpose of prostitution
  •  Mischief under $5,000
