Laval police looking for victims in pan-Canadian teen prostitution ring

Laval police are seeking for teenage victims of a suspected pimp behind a pan-Canadian prostitution ring.

Jean-Louis Kouadio, 22, was arrested in April on charges of enticing a minor into prostitution. 

But police suspect that Kouadio lured several more teenagers from the Montreal and Laval area into prostitution between August 2015 and his arrest last month. 

They also believe the teens were forced to sell their sexual services in several provinces outside of Quebec, but they haven't specified where.

Kouadio is next due in court July 7 for a pro-forma appearance. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Laval police at 450-662-4636, or by calling 911 and citing file number LVL 150913 056.
