Edmonton police say a man who was wanted on Canada-wide warrants for multiple charges, including human trafficking, was arrested in British Columbia Tuesday.
The Edmonton Police Service says Keyshawn McMillan was arrested in Burnaby, B.C., by RCMP. He was transferred to Edmonton, where he is in EPS custody.
McMillan, who featured on the Bolo Program list of Canada’s top-25 most wanted suspects in April 2022, was wanted for charges that include forcible confinement, aggravated assault, uttering threats and assault with a weapon.
“The EPS would like to thank the Burnaby RCMP and the Alberta Sheriffs for their assistance,” Edmonton police said in a statement.
Police allege McMillan violently assaulted a 19-year-old woman in March 2021, and again in August 2021.
“McMillan seriously assaulted the woman, threatened her and forcefully confined her to the motel room,” Edmonton police said of the alleged incident in August. “The woman was able to escape the room the following day on August 10, 2021.
“Upon further investigation, detectives learned that McMillan forced the female into the sex trade and trafficked her.”
McMillan was subpoenaed to attend court the following week but did not appear. He was actively evading police until his arrest last week.
