Chicago girl gang raped on Facebook Live now receiving threats
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.

A Chicago girl who was gang raped on Facebook Live has had to be relocated after receiving threats.
Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said that the girl and her family had been offered relocation services. Guglielmi went on to say, through the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, that the girl is “in a safe place.”
The girl was reunited with her family on Tuesday after she was kidnapped and gang-raped, with the entire ordeal being filmed and posted to Facebook Live as 40 people watched live and did nothing about it. Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson became aware of the situation when the girl’s mother stopped him as he was leaving the police station and showed him still images from the Facebook Live video.
According to the girl’s mother, though, the threats have not stopped since her daughter was returned home. She told the Associated Press that people on Facebook said “they are going to get her” and that children in the neighborhood had laughed about the incident and would ring their doorbell asking to see the girl.
According to Guglielmi, police have “directed special attention” to the family’s home.
The girl and her mother have been working with police in the investigation to find those responsible for the horrendous ordeal, but as of Friday, no arrests have yet been made in the case.
