Officers investigating alleged prostitution ring make another arrest

Posted on 24th April 2018

Officers investigating an alleged prostitution ring have arrested another man on suspicion of modern slavery offences.

A 58-year-old man was arrested at a house in Burton this morning on suspicion of conspiracy to traffic with a view to exploitation. He will be interviewed today.

Today’s arrest follows last week’s enforcement when officers executed warrants at Uttoxeter New Road, Derby, Violet Street, Normanton and Station Court, Burton on Tuesday, April 17.

Two men were arrested during the warrants and five women found at the two Derby houses. We are treating the women as victims and we suspect they have been trafficked around the UK to be exploited.

Geza Horvath (32), of Station Court, Burton and Daniel Zemencsik (27), of Uttoxeter New Road, Derby, were later charged with conspiracy to traffic a person with a view to sexually exploiting them and controlling a brothel for the purpose of prostitution.

They were remanded into custody to attend Derby Crown Court on May 17.
