Oxford Child Trafficking: More Charges
24 April 2012, 09:39
Two men charged with offences linked to the grooming of young girls in Oxford face another 28 charges between them.
The pair, aged 37 and 32, were among thirteen men arrested during dawn raids by 150 officers in Oxford last month (pictured above at their briefing).
The 37-year-old had already been charged with three offences linked to Thames Valley Police's ongoing investigation, and now faces another 20 charges including several relating to children under the age of 13.
An additional eight counts will be faced by the 32-year-old when they both appear before the courts today.
So far five other men have appeared in court linked to the operation and another eight have been released on police bail.
Thames Valley Police tell us fifty girls have come forward as potential victims of the suspected sex trafficking ring in Oxford.
