The teen, who had been on the street for less than a week, was earning between $500 and $700 a night, but not a penny went into her pockets Toronto Cops say.
She was just 16, still an innocent child who was earning an extravagant living for a pimp.
She was rescued by 2 Toronto Police Officers in the downtown core of toronto.
"She's in a safe place and she's recovering well," The Sex Crimes Unit for The Toronto Police service has said.
"Uniform officers found her on the streets, they found her particularly young," they said. "She was on the High Track. This girl is 16 and she obviously stood out to those officers.
Toronto detectives, with help from Peel Region's Police service have arrested Corey Clayton Greer, 21, from Brampton, charging him with pimping a child, procuring a person to become a prostitute, procure illicit sex, exercising control, sexual exploitation, living on the avails, living on the avails under 18, living on the avails under 18 with threats of violence and obstructing police.
The suspect is accused meeting the victim on the street and recruited her to become a prostitute.
He told her to work the Streets and told her how much to charge for various sex acts.
Police fear there may be other children out there who are being victmized.
"Pimps in general, much like street gangs, they go after the vulnerable youth. That's the guy or girl who may have low self esteem ... and they'll be vulnerable for any number of reasons," officer Dizon said.
