BROOKLYN -

Police arrested two Bronx men and one woman Sunday for allegedly running a child prostitution ring out of a Brooklyn house, officials say.

They say a 14- and 15-year-old girl who were reported missing on Oct. 17 were found in an East New York home after one of the girls contacted her father on social media.  

Officials say they were willingly brought to New York City by someone they trusted, but once they arrived they say they were encouraged to engage in prostitution.

The three 19-year-old suspects, Rudy Rocker, Donald Jackson and Berisa Nebahate, are facing a number of charges, including rape, attempted compelling prostitution, attempted sex trafficking, attempted promoting prostitution and acting in a manner injurious to a child.
