Warrant issued for Surrey, B.C. men on Ontario sex trafficking charges


Officials in Ontario have announced sex trafficking charges and a Canada-wide warrant for the arrest of a pair of Surrey, B.C., men.

Elkan Vyizigiro (also known as Lavish), 22, and Meaz Nour-Eldin (also known as Streets), 22, face charges after a woman was trafficked in London and other Ontario cities over a three-week period.

London police got wind of the operation on Oct. 20 after a woman came forward and said she had been trafficked by the men after meeting them through another woman.

That woman has since been arrested and charged with recruiting a person to provide sexual services, though police are not revealing her name as it could identify the alleged victim.



Vyzizigiro and Nour-Eldin are both facing more than half a dozen charges related to sex trafficking.

He is also wanted on an existing Canada-wide warrant for kidnapping, aggravated assault, robbery and firearm charges related to an incident in B.C. earlier this year. Another man wanted in that case was arrested at the B.C.-Washington state border in September.

Police say there may be additional victims. Investigators are urging anyone who believes they may be a victim or who knows the men’s whereabouts to contact the London police human trafficking unit at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Both men are considered armed and dangerous and anyone who sees them is asked to call 911 and not approach them.
