On Sunday, three suspects who reportedly held a couple of runaway girls against their will in a Brooklyn “trap house” were charged with running a sex trafficking-prostitution ring.

New York City Police officials said Rocker Rudy, 19, Donald Jackson, 19, and Berisa Nebahate, 19, were taken into custody on Saturday after one of the two teens used a cell phone to “ping” her father’s phone from East New York.

All three individuals have been charged with attempted prostitution, attempted sex trafficking, promoting prostitution, attempted labor trafficking, and endangering the welfare of a child, the New York Post reported.

Rudy was also charged with second-degree rape, assault, and criminal possession of stolen items, while Nebahate was also charged with possession of a weapon.

The three suspects are accused of luring the girls as part of a prostitution ring in Brooklyn

A young woman lured the two teens, ages 14- and 15-years-old, to the city from Ulster County with the promise of getting a modeling job.

They were first taken to The Bronx, and then to a “trap house” in East New York.

After learning that their captors were going to pimp them out in the sex trafficking-prostitution ring, the teens attempted to leave, but Nebahate threatened the victims at knifepoint.

Rudy, who reportedly raped the 14-year-old, also grabbed the older girl by the neck and punched her when they tried to flee. To cloud their judgment, the captors gave them Xanax.

At some point Saturday, the 15-year-old girl was permitted to go outside — and that’s when she used a cell to ping her father with their location.
