14-year old arrested for Facebook Live gang rape

14-year-old teen was charged for being involved in a gang rape on a female teenager and it was streamed live online.

#NEWSINBRIEF CHICAGO – The Chicago police have apprehended the first of six offenders involved in a group sexual assault of a 15-year-old female that was broadcasted live on Facebook in March. Around 40 people watched this scene through the live stream, without reporting it to the authorities. According to The Chicago Tribune, the 14-year-old boy, whose identity was protected due to his age, faces three juvenile felony charges. Police Department spokesman Anthony Gugliemi said that the police had been unaware of the incident until the victim’s mother approached the police with the video. Chicago has been struggling with a sudden increase in violent crimes, many of which are committed in indigent areas including the one where the female victim lives.
