Second arrest expected in Facebook Live rape case


Police will be making a second arrest in the heinous Facebook Live rape case that occurred last month in Chicago, with authorities obtaining an arrest warrant for a 15-year-old male.

Detectives arrested a 14-year-old male on Saturday, the first step taken in charging “five or six” males (one being an adult) with the crime.

On March 19, the perpetrators “lured” the 15-year-old female victim, who knew one or two of the males, to a residence and proceeded to live-stream her sexual assault on Facebook, where up to 40 viewers witnessed the attack.

No one called the police.

Two days later, the victim’s mother notified superintendent Eddie Johnson and showed him still images from the video. The police were immediately notified and the investigation began.

It is being reported that detectives have been hampered in their efforts to solve the case due to the young victim’s difficulty in speaking about the incident. According to Area Central Detective Commander Brendan Deenihan, she is “extremely traumatized” and added that she “did not consent to what occurred and was not allowed to leave” the residence.

Charges of aggravated criminal sexual assault, manufacturing of child pornography and dissemination of child pornography are expected on the 14-year-old in custody.
