Chicago teen apparently gang-raped on Facebook Live

Chicago teen apparently gang-raped on Facebook Live

According to reports police are now trying to track down up to six boys/young men who viciously subjected the 15-year-old girl to the horrendous assault live on Facebook.

Officers in the 10th District found Dehavion Austin Tuesday morning, Chicago Police Department Chief Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a tweet. She hadn't seen her daughter since Sunday afternoon, when Austin left their home in the 1400-block of South Avers Avenue.

"She was found today [Tuesday] at 7:45 a.m.", the spokesperson said, adding that she was now being treated at a nearby hospital. Police did not immediately have details on the video.

Police were alerted to the attack when the girl's mother approached police Superintendent Eddie Johnson after an unrelated news conference on Monday afternoon and showed him images of her daughter being assaulted by five or six men, Giancamilli said.

The girl's mother, Stacey Elkins, said the video showed her daughter in various stages of undress with several young men.

On Friday, she participated in a meeting on vocational training with the president and German Chancellor Angela Merkel . The First Daughter was present in the Cabinet Room when he delivered a talk not long after arriving to Washington, D.C.

Investigators said that while approximately 40 people watched the video, no one called the police about the alleged crime.

"Here's what's even more disturbing, more than the fact that they did this, there were so many people that saw it and didn't pick up the phone to dial 911", Johnson told the TV station.

Jeffrey Urdangen, a professor at Northwestern University's law school and the director of the school's Center for Criminal Defense, said it isn't illegal to watch such a video or to not report it to the police. "It's just not right".

The video marks the second time in recent months that the Chicago Police Department has investigated an apparent attack that was streamed live on Facebook.
