15-Year-Old Girl Sexually Assaulted By Multiple Attackers On Facebook Live

Chicago Police Department

Up to 40 people reportedly watched multiple assailants sexually assault a 15-year-old girl on Facebook Live Sunday, according to Chicago police.

The victim went missing when she didn’t return home after being dropped off by a relative, who claims to have been the last to see her before the attack.

Hours later, her family discovered a video on the Internet showing the high school freshman being attacked by “five or six” men.

After getting wind of the alarming video, cops began a search for the teen, who was ultimately found crying on a neighbor’s porch on Tuesday. She was released to her mother after receiving treatment at a nearby hospital.

No arrests have been made yet, but CPD Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted an update on the scary situation:

As the authorities pursue an investigation, a relative spoke out to the Chicago Tribune, saying:

“It hurts me to my core because I was one of the last people to see her [before the alleged attack]. I want to make sure this never happens to anybody else’s kids, and if that starts with taking down this one group, I’ll make that my life’s mission.”

Adding:

“If we don’t stand up and do anything about it now, who knows if the next kid this happens to, maybe they don’t get to come home. Maybe this doesn’t get to have a happy ending.”

Thus far neither the people who streamed the video to Facebook, nor the dozens of viewers, have been officially identified.
