Police in London arrested a third man wanted in connection with a human trafficking investigation.
Investigators say the suspect worked with two other men and all three face multiple charges including trafficking a person under 18-years-old.
The charges stem from what London police are calling a “lengthy” human trafficking investigation involving a young girl that began in London and led them to Toronto.
Search warrants were executed at three residences in Toronto on Thursday that led to the arrests of the first two men.
Investigators say the third man, a 21-year-old from Toronto, was arrested on Monday.
All of them are expected to appear in court Monday.

And has now placed a hold on CannTrust’s inventory including approximately 5,200 kg of dried cannabis.
CannTrust issued a voluntary hold of approximately 7,500 kg of dried cannabis equivalent.

The Federal Court has approved a settlement agreement for survivors of so-called Indian day schools.
Under the terms of the settlement, survivors will be able to apply for individual compensation for harms, including physical and sexual abuse, linked to attending one of the federally run institutions.
Crown- Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett says the court’s decision marks recognition of the hard work undertaken by all sides toward finding a lasting and meaningful resolution for former students and their families.
A 90-day opt-out period and a 60-day appeal period will begin now that the settlement has been approved, meaning that any class member who does not agree with its terms can choose to remove themselves from the process.
Nearly 200,000 Indigenous children attended more than 700 Indian day schools beginning in the 1920s, often enduring trauma that in some cases included physical and sexual abuse.
The schools operated separately from the residential school system and were not included in the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement approved in 2006.
