London police are asking for victims to come forward after two people were arrested in relation to a human trafficking operation that investigators say targeted students.

Police say the arrests stem from an online ad that promoted a “great opportunity” for students to make hundreds of dollars a day.

Officers say they learned about the ad on July 9 after they were contacted by a 28-year-old who had responded to the ad. The respondent made the complaint to authorities after the ad led them to becoming involved in sex work.
