The police affidavit says one of the women was forced to perform sex acts on a 2-year-old boy.
The children also witnessed sex acts between some of the defendants.
Delaware County court documents show that the investigation began in June.
The two women accused are mothers of the five children.
The charges vary from corruption of minors to involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child.
It's not immediately clear if any defendants have lawyers.
