Two Mexican nationals have been arrested in Wilson County, Tennessee on multiple child sex charges, the Wilson County Sheriff's Office reported on Tuesday.

Working with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Marshal's Task Force, WCSO says 23-year-old Fernando Limon and his brother, 28-year-old Ramiro Limon are each facing four counts of rape of a child.

Investigators began working the case in 2015, leading to their indictment. The pair was arrested last Tuesday at an Antioch residence.

WCSO detective Walker Woods says the case involved children "considerably younger" than the 13-year-old age limit sentencing guidelines involving adults charged with sex crimes against children.

Sheriff Robert Bryan thanked the TBI and U.S. Marshal's Task Force for "apprehending these suspects on such heinous charges involving our children.”
