London police believe there could be more victims of a 29-year-old man charged in a recent human trafficking investigation.
According to police, a woman made an arrangement with a man to provide her protection and transportation in exchange for compensation in early May. A short time after the agreement was made, the man began demanding more money than what the woman could pay.
When she did not give him the demanded amount, the man threatened and assaulted her on multiple occasions, police allege.
The woman's injuries during these attacks varied from minor to serious.
The police human trafficking unit began investigating the incident after the man allegedly broke into the woman's home earlier this month and damaged property inside.
The man was identified with the assistance of the Toronto Police Service and was arrested in London last Wednesday.
Quwayne Miller, 29, of Scarborough, has since been charged with trafficking in persons by exercising control, financially benefiting trafficking a person over 18, material benefitting from sexual services, procuring or exercising control, criminal harassment by combination of prohibited conduct, breaking and entering with intent, and assault with a weapon.
Miller remains in police custody and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday in relation to the charges.
Investigators believe there may be other victims. They are asking anyone who may have had similar dealings with Miller, who also goes by the alias “Q”, “Spider”, and “Crooked Letter Schemez” to call them at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
