We wanted to let you know that we have made six arrests today (Tuesday 27 November) as part of an intelligence-led modern day slavery operation in Southampton linked to the sex trade.
 
Three residential addresses in Portsmouth Road, Garton Road, Oceana Boulevard were visited as part of the operation.

Six people were arrested on suspicion of modern day slavery offences.

• A 52-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of holding a person in slavery or servitude
• A 64-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of managing a brothel used for prostitution.
• A 49-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of holding a person in slavery or servitude

They remain in police custody at this time.
 
Two women, aged 35 and 40-years-old are being treated as victims and are being supported by specially trained officers.
 
Information from the communities of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight is key in identifying criminal activity connected to organised crime and modern day slavery. We would continue to encourage anyone who notices suspicious activity or a vulnerable person who seems to be working against their will to contact us.
 
Anyone with information which could assist this current investigation is asked to contact us on 101 and quote Operation Bayonet or 44180438539.
