UPDATE: The 15-year-old girl who was reported missing before enduring a brutal sexual assault by my multiple men on a Facebook Live video was found walking by herself blocks from her home Tuesday morning.
Chicago Police are searching for five or six men or boys suspected of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl on Facebook Live.
Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Tuesday that detectives found the girl and reunited her with her family. She went missing on Sunday.
Guglielmi says about 40 people viewed the attack on Facebook while it was happening, and none of them reported it to police.
He says police Superintendent Eddie Johnson was leaving a station in the Lawndale neighbourhood on Chicago’s West Side late Monday afternoon when a woman approached him with photographs of her daughter being sexually assaulted on Facebook. He says Johnson immediately ordered an investigation and the department contacted Facebook to take down the video, which it did.
