Peel police have arrested three men from Brampton for using an underage girl in sex trade.

While Amritpal Singh, 23, Harkuwar Singh, 22, and Sukhmanpreet Singh, 23, have been arrested, the hunt is on for a fourth accused.

The case came to light on August 21 when police got a call that a woman under 18-years-old was being held against her will, violently assaulted and being trafficked within the sex trade.

The victim was rescued and taken to a hospital with serious non-life-threatening injuries.

On the same day, police attended a residence in the area of Bovaird Drive West and Creditview Road and arrested the three men.

While Amritpal Singh and Harkuwar Singh have been charged with sex trafficking, advertising sexual services, and benefiting from sexual services, Sukhmanpreet Singh has been charged with forcible confinement and aggravated assault.

Police say they are looking for the fourth suspect who is also a South Asian. He is described as 6 feet, 200lbs, short dark hair with a black beard.

Investigators believe there could be more human trafficking victims and witnesses to this investigation and are urging anyone with information related to this case or the unknown suspect to contact them at 905 453-2121, extension 3555.
