Chicago Teen Raped On Facebook Live
A Chicago teenager who spent the weekend with her uncle, left on Sunday after church to resume her weekly activities. Reginald King says that a day after his niece departed from him, he came across a her graphic Facebook Live stream where she was being raped by up to six guys. The Chicago Tribune reports that Reginald was shocked, “It was very, very graphic. She’s pulled toward the bed” he said. The teen was kidnapped on the way to the store and used the video to alert someone.
“This is one of the bravest things I’ve ever seen a kid do. There were adults who saw this. None of them had the wherewithal to say, ‘Hey, I gotta call someone’ ” her uncle said of her decision. The High School Freshman wasn’t returned home safely until Tuesday morning, when cops found her walking a few blocks away from her home. Police say they are working on identifying who the thugs are in the video who forced themselves on the girl. The disturbing part it, that the video had up to 40 viewers at one point, and no one bothered to contact police and help identify any of the alleged attackers.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted that investigators were “making good progress identifying persons of interest in 10th Dist assault. Interviews ongoing but no formal suspects named yet.”
