Man in Sweden ‘live-streamed gang rape on Facebook’
The men have been arrested in Sweden on suspicion of gang-raping a woman, after one allegedly live-streamed the crime on a closed Facebook page.
According to Sweden’s Aftonbladet tabloid, the alleged crime took place in an apartment in the city of Uppsala early on Sunday morning, with police receiving a tip-off just before 9am.
The victim was reportedly close to unconscious at the time the act was perpetrated.
“The first thing you think is “How can you do such a thing to a girl? and how can you do it live when you know that you are going to go there?” a former member of the closed Facebook group told Sweden’s Expressen “I think of course that it is screwed, totally sick.” Ivan Åslund from the local police would not confirm the claims that the crime had been live-streamed.
