Ottowa police have charged two 15-year-old girls with human trafficking for allegedly luring other teenage girls into prostitution.

Staff Sgt. John McGetrick called the case shocking Tuesday and said police have never seen anything like it before.

Police allege that on three separate occasions, the teenagers
lured three other girls between the ages of 13 and 17 to a residence for social reasons. From there, the victims were driven to other locations for the purpose of prostitution.

The girls face multiple charges, including human trafficking, robbery, procuring, forcible confinement, sexual assault, assault, uttering threats and abduction.

Police are looking for a third suspect, a 17-year-old girl.

McGetrick declined to provide details but said the victims were confined and forced to engage in prostitution.
