Chicago police arrest boy, 14, seek others in Facebook rape case

Police in Chicago have arrested a 14-year-old boy and are seeking a 15-year-old in connection with the gang rape of a teenage girl that was broadcast on Facebook Live, authorities said Sunday. Police were working to identify other suspects — the Facebook video, since taken down, showed as many as six — but the trauma suffered by the 15-year-old victim was complicating the investigation, area commander Brendan Deenihan told a news conference. “She’s just having a difficult time even communicating what occurred to her,” Deenihan said, adding that the teen had been cyber-bullied by people belittling her ordeal, and that her family had received threats.
