Second victim found in human trafficking case

Charges added for accused first arrested in February

Three people who were arrested on Feb. 27 for allegedly forcing a 14-year-old girl into the sex trade now face additional charges after a second victim has come forward.

A 16-year-old girl contacted police upon hearing about the first arrests through a press release.

According to Toronto police, the victim was forced by three people to provide sexual favours over the course of two days at a downtown hotel in January. She managed to escape, after which her alleged captors threatened to harm her if she did not return, police say.

Face a total of 43 charges related to human trafficking as of March 16 are Sage Finestone, 21; Nicholas Faria, 19; and Natasha Robitaille, 18.

Police say they suspect there may be still more victims.
