Two arrests were made after investigators determined a 15-year-old girl living there was being forced to have sex with older men, according to the Oxnard Police Department.

One suspect, 23-year-old Graciela Vasquez, is alleged to have brought the 15-year-old to the home.

The other, 34-year-old Rolando Navarette, reportedly had sex with the young woman in addition to forcing her to sleep with other men.

The investigation was prompted by an anonymous report, authorities said.

The 10 other children in the home were taken into custody by child protective services.
