Two women were found drugged, beaten and bound as apparent sex slaves in a prostitution bust in Northeast Philly midnight Sunday, reports cbs3.com.

Police arrested five people after using a search warrant to gain access to rooms at the Ramada on Roosevelt Boulevard. The warrant was for a female wanted for a probation violation and resulted in the discovery of a prostitution and drug ring operating out of eight rooms at the Ramada, says cbs3.com.

Police found the woman they were looking for and also found two women who apparently were prostitutes against their will. The two women, who appeared to be tied, drugged and “beaten into submission,” were brought to a local hospital.

Police arrested two men at the scene on charges of kidnapping, rape, and possession of narcotics, says cbs3.com. Police took three women into custody for on suspicion of prostitution.

The prostitution ring may be part of a much larger operation, say investigators.
