The group made up of 11 prostitutes were reportedly been forced to walk naked through the city centre by the police before they were taken away in police cars.
The girls shed tears as they were filmed by passers by in St Petersburg, Russia, after a successful police raid on an illegal brothel in the city's historic Vasilyevsky Island.
The reports further reveal that all the girls who were working at the brothel had been arrested as were their clients, although three men managed to escape through a back door.
Daily Mail reports that the group had been marched naked through five city blocks before being put into the police cars which had taken them to the police station.
An eye-witness says:
"Police burst into the building and a little while later left with naked and crying prostitutes."
It is also reported that the brothel was alleged to be responsible for a flood in the apartment below.
