Brothels in Rohnert Park apartment complex raided

- Rohnert Park Department of Safety detectives raided brothels at an apartment complex on Rohnert Park Expressway Wednesday.

The apartment complex management informed the public safety department they had evicted the occupants of two apartments when they found signs of prostitution and suspected a third apartment also was involved.

An apartment resident also informed detectives that men frequently came and went from a fourth apartment at the complex, according to the Department of Public Safety.

Detectives then located ads on the internet offering Asian women for massages and sex acts at the two apartments that were still active.

Undercover detectives went to the apartments and were greeted by a woman wearing lingerie.

Detectives found four adult women who spoke little English in the two sparsely furnished apartments that were set up primarily for prostitution, according to the Department of Public Safety.

The women were put in contact with advocacy services to help them stop prostitution activities and were provided transportation to a safe location set up by advocates when requested.

The apartments were part of a large statewide Asian brothel operation that frequently moved women to different locations, the Department of Public Safety said.

Two men soliciting prostitution services arrived at one of the apartments when detectives were present and they were interviewed and released, the Department of Public Safety said.

Detectives worked with the apartment complex management to begin the eviction process on the last two apartments, and the investigation of the brothel operators is continuing, the Public Safety Department said.
