The arrests of two people on sex trafficking charges in Brooklyn could be the tip of the iceberg, according to police sources who said the operation may be linked to a gang that has been forcing young girls into prostitution.

Cops said there are still a lot of unknowns, including the connection between the four younger children in the apartment and the people who were arrested.
