Toronto police have arrested a second man in connection with a human trafficking investigation launched in April.
According to police, between September 2014 and April 2015, a woman was tricked into working in the sex trade by a man.
The man was assisted by a second suspect, who was previously arrested and is currently in custody, police said.
The man, promising the woman they would make a lot of money, took photographs of the victim in various degrees of undress. He then posted them on backpages.com, advertising sexual services.
Police allege the woman was forced to have sex with clients and then turn the money she made over to the man.
A suspect was arrested Tuesday. Police believe there may be more victims.
Twenty-two-year-old George Kruzik, of Toronto, faces four charges, including trafficking in person by recruiting, material benefit from sexual services, and procuring.
He appeared in court this morning.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-7474 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
