Police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for 25-year-old Solomon Houlder.

According to Hamilton Police, his offences include kidnapping, human trafficking, assault, forcible confinement, material benefit from trafficking, and failing to comply with probation.

In mid-November of 2018, members of the Hamilton Police were informed of several incidents involving Houlder, who has no fixed address.

Since that time, police have continued investigating his actions and subsequently applied for a warrant for his arrest.

A Canada-wide warrant has since been granted and police say Houlder is aware of the fact that he has been actively avoiding his arrest since last November.

Police say Houlder has ties to Hamilton, but his current whereabouts are unknown.
