A man in Vaughan is facing a slew of charges tied to child prostitution after police say they rescued a 15-year-old girl during a traffic stop in that city.
York Regional Police say their officers pulled over a car Thursday afternoon near Keele St and Hwy 407 because its plate sticker was expired. Alarm bells went off when police found a 15-year-old girl in the back seat with no relation to the man driving.
Police alleged that not long before, the man had lured the girl to a hotel for sexual activity in exchange for money.
