TORONTO - Two men are facing a string of charges following a human trafficking investigation in which police continue to look for a third suspect.
Police say that a 17-year-old girl was alleged forced into the sex trade industry and taken to hotels throughout the Greater Toronto Area where she was forced to work as a sex-trade worker over about three months.

Deshawn Holmes, 19, has been arrested and faces six charges that include trafficking in persons under 18 by exercising control, and criminal harassment.
Nathan Turnbull, 19, has been arrested and faces four charges that include procuring a person under 18 years and uttering threats.
