Police seek additional victims of accused human traffickersMay 28, 2019 11:09am
London police are concerned that there may be more victims of two Brampton men accused of trafficking a teenage girl four years ago.
Javon Reid, 24, and Jevone Brown, 26, were recently arrested on several human trafficking offences in connection with the 2015 incident. They are both charged with trafficking of a person under the age of 18, sexual interference with person under 16 years of age, sexual assault as party to offence with other person, obtaining sexual services for consideration from person under 18 years, financial/material benefit/trafficking person under 18, and advertising another person’s sexual services.
Brown is also charged with printing/publishing/possessing child pornography and importing/selling/distributing child pornography.
Further investigation has led detectives to believe additional women may have been trafficked by the pair in cities along Hwy. 401 between 2015 and this year. Those cities include Windsor, Sarnia, Waterloo, Niagara Falls, Peterborough, the Greater Toronto Area, and Montreal.
“We are very concerned that there may be more girls and women who have been taken from city to city and trafficked,” said Detective Sgt. Dave Poustie. “Any potential victims are urged to contact the London Police Service or their local policing agency.”
According to police, Brown also goes by the names “Vonnie”, “Q-Tip” and “Sachi”, while Reid has been known to use the name “Lights.”
Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to call police at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
