Gang Rape of 15-Year-Old Was on Facebook Live; Police Search for Attackers - North Lawndale - DNAinfo Chicago
CHICAGO — A 15-year-old girl who had been reported missing was gang-raped on Facebook Live, officials said.
The girl went missing Sunday. On Tuesday, Anthony Guglielmi, a Chicago Police Department spokesman, announced she had been found by Ogden District officers and reunited with her mother.
The family of the girl approached Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson at a news conference on Monday, told him they’d seen her being sexually assaulted by several boys in a video on Facebook Live and showed him stills from the video, Guglielmi said.
Johnson took the girl’s mother aside and called the chief of detectives.
“I’m dismayed at the way that social media continues to rear its head in incidents that happen on the greater West Side and North Lawndale,” Scott said. “Facebook Live is becoming all too real in our society.”
