Peel Regional Police have made an arrest in connection to a human-trafficking investigation in Mississauga.

  1. Trafficking in Persons
  2. Receiving Benefit resulting from Trafficking in Persons
  3. Exercising Control Over a Sex Trade Worker
  4. Deriving Benefit from Sexual Services
  5. Advertise Sexual Services
  6. Assault (x2)
  7. Utter threats (x2)

Sbeiti appeared at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton for a bail hearing today.
