Five gang members repeatedly raped four teenage girls, forced them to have sex for money at Atlanta-area hotels and beat one of the teens on an almost daily basis, federal authorities said.

The five men are part of a gang that called itself “Da M.O.B.,” and their alleged victims were three 14-year-old girls and one 16-year-old, prosecutors said. The men are accused of raping the girls and forcing them to perform sex acts for money and, in one case, beating a girl daily.

Hill and Saintvil also trafficked a third 14-year-old, and Hill choked and beat her when she refused to engage in prostitution, prosecutors said.

The second indictment says Cobb County police and the FBI responded to a call in June from a 16-year-old girl who said she was being held against her will, prosecutors said. The girl told investigators she met Murray and King in May. A short time later, Branch began driving her to various motels where King and Murray forced her to perform sex acts for money. Murray beat her almost daily and, when she tried to escape, Murray raped her while King held her down, the girl told investigators. When she did escape, the men encountered her in an apartment complex parking lot and fired shots at her, prosecutors said.
