Chicago Police Say They're Investigating Livestreamed Gang Rape Of Teenage Girl


According to reports police are now trying to track down up to six boys/young men who viciously subjected the 15-year-old girl to the horrendous assault live on Facebook.

Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the girl was found by Ogden District police officers, and was at Area Central headquarters with her mother. Elkins said she had seen a Facebook Live video in which a girl who looked like her daughter was being assaulted.

The girl, who was reported missing Sunday afternoon, is said to be the victim of a gang rape that was live streamed over Facebook, reports Fox News.

The girl's family reported her missing after the teen didn't return from a trip to the store Sunday, March 19.

It was the latest incident over the past few months in Chicago where the social media site has played a role in broadcasting apparent crimes.

Violent Mt Etna eruption injures BBC crew (VIDEO, PHOTOS)
A BBC television crew and a number of tourists have been injured by fiery molten lava after venturing up an erupting Mount Etna. The injured were hit by the lava, boiling rocks and steam erupting from the volcano, but none of them are in critical condition.

The girl's mother, Stacey Elkins, said the video showed her daughter in various stages of undress with several young men.

Approximately 40 people had watched the video, and none of them had called police to report the rape, the AP and WGN report. He said she told detectives that she knows at least one of her alleged attackers, but it remained unclear how well they knew each other.

"What's even more disturbing, more than the fact that they did this, there were so many people that saw this and they didn't pick up the phone and dial 911", [police superintendent Eddie] Johnson told WGN. "That's not right. It's just not right".

Police began searching for the girl, who was located Tuesday. Back in January, a mentally disabled man was taunted and beaten up on a live post that spread across the site.
