Three people have been charged with human trafficking
offences, including the 17-year-old suspect. The victim was held captive for a month, Insp. Joanna Beaven-Desjardins told reporters on Friday.

Police said it was during that meeting at Paris's Toronto home that the victim was told she would be taken to Niagara Falls to perform sexual services for clients.
