A London man who was arrested in Brampton on Monday has been charged with attempted murder and human trafficking, along with dozens of other offences.

Peel regional police say a 19-year-old woman was approached at gunpoint “for the purposes of working in the sex trade” on Aug. 3.

Two days later, her 20-year-old cousin was shot near Fletchers Creek Boulevard and Williams Parkway at 3:30 a.m. He was treated for his injuries in hospital.
