Fourteen women of Asian descent were rescued from a rented house allegedly used as a prostitution den within the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga, police said Tuesday.

The Philippine National Police Regional Anti-Trafficking Task Group in Central Luzon said the rescued women include 8 Chinese and 6 Vietnamese women aged between 24 and 43.

Two Chinese men believed to be behind operations of the prostitution den were also arrested.

Based on authorities' surveillance video, customers would choose from a lineup of women. They then bring their chosen women in rooms inside the house. 

Transactions cost from P6,000 to P10,000 each, and only foreign clients are allowed entry into the rented house.

Police will coordinate with the Bureau of Immigration regarding the rescued victims while the 2 Chinese men will be facing raps for human trafficking.
