MEDIA RELEASE
BREAK AND ENTER CALL LEADS TO SEVEN ARRESTS
AND 33 PROSTITUTION-RELATED CHARGES

On Tuesday, March 2, 2004, York Regional Police responded to a break and enter in progress at a residence on Weldrick Road West, in the Town of Richmond Hill.

What they found upon their arrival, however, had little
to do with a break-in.

At approximately 12:30 p.m., investigating officers found a woman inside the home, who revealed she and two other females were being held against their will. The three had arrived separately from Russia in the fall of 2003 and began working for Toronto escort services.

They would meet numerous clients in various hotels throughout the GTA and provide sexual services.

During the month of February, two of the victims, aged 19 and 23, attended a hotel on separate occasions, for what they assumed was a regular meeting with a client. However, upon their arrival, the victims were forcibly removed from the hotel and taken to a residence in Richmond Hill.

The third 20-year-old victim was removed from the home she shared with the 19-year-old victim. Their documents and cell phones were taken from them and although they were allowed a certain level of freedom, they were threatened and told their families in Russia were at risk.

The victims were driven to and from the Arther’s Spa on Finch Avenue on a daily basis, forced to provide sexual services and turn over their earnings to the owners.

So far, seven people have been arrested and charged. The investigation is continuing and further charges are
expected.

CHARGED:
• Pavel MUZHIKOV, 26 years, of Richmond Hill
• Angelica CECHIRCA, 31 years, of Richmond Hill
• Alexander VERBON, 29 years, of Richmond Hill
• Stanislav KAVALENKA, 42 years, of Vaughan
• Miklin VIATCHELAN, 35 years, of Toronto
• Pavel BAOUTINE, 29 years, of Scarborough
• Sergei OLYMPIEU, 29 years, of Toronto

CHARGES INCLUDE:
• Living Off the Avails of Prostitution
• Procuring Prostitution
• Possession of Counterfeit Money
• Soliciting Prostitution
• Forcible Confinement

Accused Muzhikov, Cechirca, Verbon and Kavalenka have been released on bail with conditions and will appear again before the Ontario Court of Justice on March 22, 2004.

Viatchelan, Baoutine and Olympieu will appear in court later today.

Anyone with information about this incident or similar incidents is asked to contact the York Regional Police Drugs and Vice Bureau at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 7817, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
