Potential victims of pimp Pierre-André Baptiste sought across Canada by the EILP

08 october 2020

At the request of the Équipe intégrée de lutte contre le proxénétisme (EILP), the RCMP Surrey detachment proceeded with the arrest of Pierre-André Baptiste on Thursday, September 24 for engaging in the sexual exploitation of a 25-year-old woman.

The investigators have reasons to believe this pimp might have other victims in Montréal and in other cities across the country.

Mr. Baptiste appeared last Thursday at the Saint-Jérôme courthouse to answer several charges, including human trafficking, pimping, assault and material benefit from the provision of sexual services.

Pierre-André Baptiste alias Boulou, 30, has black skin, black hair and black eyes. He is 5’9” (1.75 m) and weighs 200 lb (90 kg). Both his ears are pierced. He has various tattoos, including two tears under his right eye, a cross under his left eye and the inscription Boulou on his right forearm.

Anyone who may have been a victim or knows a potential victim of Pierre-André Baptiste is asked to visit their local police station, call 9-1-1 or contact Info-Crime Montréal anonymously and confidentially at 514-393-1133 or online.
