Three Chicago teenagers are facing sexual assault charges after they allegedly raped a 12-year-old girl at gunpoint and posted a video of that attack on Facebook.
In December, two 16-year-old boys and one 15-year-old boy brought the girl to one of their homes and allegedly took turns assaulting her, including sodomizing her. One of the young men had a gun in his pocket during some of the assaults and another held the gun during the rape. All of the rapes were caught on film and all three boys are visible in the videos, flashing gang signs.
Fortunately the girl told someone about the assaults the next day and was taken to a hospital. But one day after that, the rape video was posted on all three boys’ Facebook pages.
Each boy is being charged as an adult. They have all been held in lieu of $900,000 bail.
