Two Chinese women have been accused of running an illegal brothel after police raided three locations covered in garbage, sheets and women's shoes.

Police arrested six people Tuesday in an apartment in the suburb of Reid in Canberra. The other four were Thai citizens who worked illegally in Australia.

The photos of the attack show plastic bags strewn across the floor of a brothel room, with bedding scattered on the furniture and mold that covers the bathroom ceiling.

Detective station sergeant Adrian Craft said illegal brothels were detrimental to residents and the police.

He said: "Having illegal brothels operating in apartment complexes can be terribly damaging to residents.

"The police will continue to attack illegal brothels in the Canberra financial district to improve the environment for those who live in the complexes."

ACT Acting Superintendent Kari Ellis said: "We are focused on disrupting companies that employ and potentially exploit illegal foreign workers."
