Sickening. Update to this previous story.
A 14-year-old boy was taken into custody Saturday night in connection with the sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl that was streamed live on Facebook last month.
Chicago Police announced the arrest of the first “of several juvenile offenders” in the assault, Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said on Twitter.
The boy is facing felony counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault, manufacturing of child pornography and dissemination of child pornography, police said.
More information is expected to be released at a news conference at 11 a.m. Sunday at Chicago Police Headquarters, 3510 S. Michigan Ave.[…]
The girl and her family received threats and she was taunted on social media as news of her assault came out, police said.
Guglielmi said in an email March 24 that the girl had been relocated out of her home into a “safe space.”
