Two teenage girls have been arrested for aggravated pimping. They are suspected on having sold a girl to several men in Malmö in southern Sweden, according to the Metro newspaper.

"It is a question of a girl of around the same age as the detained girls. We don't know at the moment whether there are more people involved," district prosecutor Ulrika Roland told the newspaper.

The suspects, a 17-year-old and a 19-year-old, were arrested on Tuesday on the highest grade of suspicion applied by the Swedish police.

It is neither known how many men the young girl has been sold to but as the crime has been classified as "aggravated" there is an indication that the girl has been misused in a particularly brutal manner, the newspaper writes.

If the girls are convicted of aggravated pimping they could faced prison sentences of up to six years.
