A 15-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by multiple suspects, Chicago police said.
The incident was streamed on Facebook Live, the victim’s family said, where police say it was viewed by dozens of people in real time.
Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted Tuesday that police are “making good progress identifying persons of interest” in the assault on the teenager, which involved as many as five or six men or boys. The tweet mentioned that interviews are “ongoing” but police have yet to name any formal suspects or make any arrests.
“What’s even more disturbing, more than the fact that they did this, there were so many people that saw this and they didn’t pick up the phone and dial 911,” police Superintendent Eddie Johnson told WGN-TV. “That’s just not right and working on it and [trying] to bring it to a successful resolution.”
