LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Three men have now been arrested and charged with sexual assault of a child in connection with the case of an Amarillo girl who said she was held captive in a house on 44th Street.

Police were called to the McDonald's at 50th & Quaker on Friday night, July 19 around 9:30 p.m. The girl told police she had escaped from the house and come to the restaurant for help.

Sgt. Lewis says they are seeing seen more of these types of crimes and are doing everything in their power to stop them.

"There's opportunity for people to make some money and if they don't have that moral fiber, they'll use juvenile females to try and earn money," he said. "We have juvenile detectives that do follow-up with runaways and just to see where they are, what transpired, why they were gone and what kinds of activities they were involved with. Also we have undercover officers that do things like we saw a couple weeks ago."

This led to an early morning SWAT raid on July 20, but the occupants of the home came out and surrendered peacefully.

Three men, Eduardo Hernandez, 23, Angel Ramos, 41, Justin Blake Hernandez, 20 have now been charged with sexual assault of a child and are being held in the Lubbock County Detention Center.

"I look to see more charges come down at some point once detectives sort through more of this stuff and help get to the bottom of it," said Sgt. Jason Lewis with the Lubbock Police Department.

In the arrest warrant issued for Eduardo Hernandez, the girl said she was coerced into prostitution and that Hernandez would punch her when she didn't make enough money.

Lubbock police say the investigation is still ongoing.
