An investigation into human trafficking by police in Durham Region has led to an arrest of a Brampton man.

Durham Regional Police say that earlier this month a woman came forward to say that she had been forced into the sex trade.

“The suspect would post ads, arrange dates, drive the victim to her calls and take all of her money,” police say.

As result, Durham’s Human Trafficking Unit arrested a man who goes by the street name of “Orange” on March 16.

Charged is Carl “Ikenna” Obonna, 32, of Cranberry Crt. in Brampton.

He is charged with two counts of trafficking in a person by exercising control, taking financial/material benefit trafficking a person over the age of 18, obtaining sexual services for consideration, material benefit from sexual services and advertising another person’s sexual services.

He was held for a bail hearing.

Police have released a photo of the man charged.

Anyone with new information about this investigation is asked to contact the Durham’s Human Trafficking Unit at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 5600.
