WINTER HAVEN (FOX 13) -

Two men have been arrested in a brutal rape case in Polk County.

Deputies accuse Richard and Delgado Cruz -- who are brothers -- of raping a woman while her husband and son were tied up in the next room.

Sheriff Grady Judd on Thursday called it one of the most horrific cases he’s ever seen.

Richard, 33, was arrested first; police later tracked down Danny in Kissimmee on Thursday night.

Deputies say the men doused the victim with bleach to try and erase any evidence.  It happened near Puffer Court and Halibut Lane in Poinciana.

The men are expected to face a judge Friday.
