Two teenagers, who ran away from home last week, were found in a Brooklyn ‘trap house’ where they were being held captive by suspects who planned to pimp them out.
The girls, ages 14 and 15, went missing from Ulster County on Tuesday night and were rescued on Saturday.
Their alleged captors, Rudy Rocker, 18, Donald Jackson, 20, and Nebahate Derisa, 19, were arrested on attempted sex trafficking and other charges.

The teens had been held prisoner in an East New York house where they were to be pimped out as prostitutes.
According to the New York Post, the girls were driven down from Ulster County and into The Bronx by someone they trusted, a law-enforcement source said.
They were then brought to a party at a ‘trap house’, where they were being held by their captors on the second floor.
‘THEY FOUND MY GIRL!!!!!!!!!’ the father of the 14-year-old girl posted on Facebook after his daughter was rescued from a gated house on Snediker Ave near Linden Blvd around 2pm on Saturday.
New York police said the 15-year-old girl managed to send her GPS information from her cellphone to her father.
The girl said she heard the three men talk about forcing her and her friend to sell themselves, according to the New York Daily News.
Her dad then notified police. State troopers were able to track the teen’s phone to East New York and alerted the 75th Precinct. NYPD cops rushed to the house.
Officials said a suspect attacked one of the girls when she tried to leave. Cops also said one of the teens was dating a suspect.
Police have not released the identities of the teens because they are minors.
