Chicago teen arrested in Facebook Live gang rape case

A 14-year-old Chicago boy has been arrested for taking part in a group sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl. The attack was streamed on Facebook Live.

The teen boy is facing aggravated criminal sexual assault charges as well as charges related to disseminating child pornography.

He is just the first of multiple juvenile offenders from the March 19th assault to be charged, with more arrests to follow. Police are on the hunt for as many as six people from the video.

According to police spokesman Jose Estrada, the video showed mostly closeups of body parts, which has made it hard to identify the assailants.

Since the attack, the young victim has been harassed through online taunts, and police are currently working to ensure she is safe.

The girl was reported missing in the afternoon of March 19 after she didn’t come home from a store in Lawndale, Chicago. Sometime between then and the next morning, her mother saw the Facebook Live video of her daughter being assaulted.

That was when the mother made another trip to the police station to show them the live stream. At least 40 people watched the live stream, and not a single person reported what was happening.

The teen victim was treated at the hospital and is now at home with her family.
