Prosecutors: Facebook assault victim was threatened with dog


A 15-year-old boy being sought on an arrest warrant in the sexual assault of a Chicago teenager that was streamed live on Facebook has turned himself in to police.

The 14-year-old boy is accused of telling the victim she could "have sex the easy way or the hard way", according to the Associated Press.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told reporters that the boy will be brought to a juvenile detention center, where a 14-year-old boy who was arrested in the same case over the weekend is now being held.

Both suspects are charged with several counts each of aggravated sexual assault and manufacturing and dissemination of child pornography. They say he was involved in the gang rape of a teen girl that was streamed live over the internet.

The 15-year-old suspect's mother drove him to the police station on Monday afternoon, a police spokesman said.

Associate Judge Patricia Mendoza scheduled the next hearing for April 28, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting. Approximately forty people watched the video, but no one notified the police about the alleged crime, authorities said.


Gardener said the girl was threatened with the release of a pit bull if she tried to get away. "I don't want to go too much into detail, but I'm going to say she was lured into the residence, and then from there she was not allowed to leave and she didn't consent to what occurred". And police said the bullying hasn't risen to the level of criminal conduct.

Johnson reportedly said that though the young girl went through a bad ordeal, she was able to stay strong. She was taken to Comer Children's Hospital and subsequently was reunited with her family.

Police superintendent Eddie Johnson condemned the attack at a news conference Sunday at the Chicago Police headquarters.

"We've seen a couple acts in this city now in the last few months involving social media, and it just disgusts me that people could look at those videos and not pick up the phone and dial 911", Johnson said at a news conference on Sunday. "They humiliated themselves, humiliated their families, and now they're going to be held accountable for what they did".

The young girl has reportedly been bullied since the attack and she and her family have been moved to a "safe place" to protect them.
