Police have made three arrests after concerns were raised about a flat in Cambridge being used as a suspected brothel.
The work by officers in the city last night (7 November) followed a call just before 9pm raising concerns that girls at the address could be being exploited.
Officers visited the address and arrested three people at the scene.
A 39-year-old man from Sawston, a 51-year-old woman from Cambridge and a 42-year-old woman of no known address were arrested on suspicion of causing or inciting prostitution for gain.
All three remain in custody at Parkside Police Station.
The action follows work by officers in September which resulted in two men being arrested and nine women being safeguarded.
Detective Sergeant James Sheffield said: “We are doing all we can to crack down on sexual exploitation linked to human trafficking and modern slavery.
“Victims of this type of crime are often completely controlled and feel too trapped to speak up, but it’s important they know who to turn to for help.
“They are exploited either due to debt in their home country or having been sold a false dream of a life in the UK which, in reality, results in them being exploited and is very far from a dream indeed.”
DS Sheffield said members of the public play a vital role in helping to tackle sexual exploitation, modern slavery and labour exploitation.
He said: “If anyone has any suspicions at all in their local area around these concerns then we’d urge them to report them to us.
“Information supplied helps us build a picture of what is happening in certain areas and could help us safeguard many more potential victims. Please pass on any concerns or information.”
