Seven men wanted for jumping on police car, threatening officer following Raptors game Toronto Police are searching for seven men wanted for mischief and threatening an officer following the Toronto Raptors’ victory Saturday evening. At about 11:20 p.m., several men jumped on top of a Toronto police car with an officer inside in the Yonge-Dundas Square area, police said in a press release Wednesday. Police say an officer attempted to arrest one person, but let him go when the crowd encroached upon him and a man threatened to kill the officer. Following the Raptors’ victory, a video on Twitter circulated of several men celebrating on top of a police car at Yonge-Dundas Square in front of a crowd of people.

According to Toronto Police , on Friday, January 25, 2019, members of their Human Trafficking Enforcement Team began an investigation into a report of human trafficking . It is alleged that a man utilized a “noxious substance to render a 22-year-old woman unconscious and then control her.”

Police have arrested two people and issued an arrest warrant for a third after a 17-year-old girl was forced into the sex trade industry. Police have issued an arrest warrant for Beausejour in connection with a human trafficking investigation. ( Toronto Police Service).

Ho-On, from Toronto, was charged with 17 human trafficking-related offences on May 29, in addition to nine other offences that he was charged with in February.

In that case, police alleged that a man used a noxious substance to render a 22-year-old woman unconscious, and that he tattooed her body with his nickname of “Sosa” to let people know she belonged to him.

He then allegedly pressured and coerced her into the sex trade and advertised her on numerous websites along with another man.

Duchard, who is from Quebec, was arrested on May 3 in B.C. and brought back to Toronto to answer to 10 charges.

In that case, police alleged that between September 2018 and January 2019 a female met a male through a social media application and was coerced into working in the sex trade, while the man facilitated meetings with clients.

Police said Duchard has ties in Quebec and may be known by the nickname V12.

For both cases, police are concerned that there may be more victims.

Toronto police have arrested at least 14 people for human trafficking-related charges so far this year.
