SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego Police arrested a woman last week for reportedly sex trafficking two young girls.

According to police, the woman, identified as Desiree Morton, called officers on July 17 to report that she was a victim of domestic violence and that her boyfriend stole her vehicle.

When officers responded to the unspecified location, they found Morton, along with two other girls police say appeared to be younger than 18 and had no identification cards.

Police say the girls also had tattoos along their jaws.

The two girls later told investigators they were 14 and 15-years-old.

Officers arrested Morton after she reportedly admitted to prostituting the girls. The girls were taken into protective custody.
