A young man accused of luring two teenage girls into prostitution has been released on bail.

Nicholas Boscoe was released from custody March 24 following a bail hearing in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court.

Boscoe, 18, faces three counts of procuring a person to become a prostitute, connected to incidents in Maple Ridge, North Vancouver and Vancouver. He is also accused of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and attempting to pervert, defeat or obstruct justice.

Ridge Meadows RCMP allege that Boscoe and a co-accused David Kevin May lured two teenaged girls into prostitution by promising them money and other incentives.

Police won’t disclose the age of the victims, but said they are both under 18.

Boscoe was granted bail on condition he reside with his father. He will also be bound by a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. and must have no contact with the victims.

May, 22, was on probation for participating in the Stanley Cup riot at the time of his arrest. He has been detained.
