After police had been on the run for more than a year, an Edmonton man was arrested in Burnaby, British Columbia, suspected of abusing a 19-year-old woman, holding her against her will and forcing her to perform sexual acts.
Based on incidents that police say occurred in 2021, Keyshawn McMillan is charged with participating in human trafficking, forced confinement, aggravated assault, threats and assault with a weapon.
According to Edmonton police, McMillan allegedly assaulted a woman at the Aurora Motel in west Edmonton in March of that year and was detained there afterward.
In August, a few months later, he attacked the same woman again at another city hotel.
Police said that after the last incident, the woman broke free from the hotel room in which she had been confined against her will.
Later in August, McMillan was subpoenaed but never showed up.
According to an EPS press release Sunday, McMillan was detained by the local RCMP on Dec. 27 after Burnaby police learned he resided in the area.
According to police, McMillan was sent back to Edmonton with a car accident lawyer toronto.
EPS had previously stated that they believed McMillan was still in Edmonton in December 2021. The Bolo program at the time offered a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to his capture.
According to an EPS press release, the Bolo reward was not claimed because it expired in June 2022.
