(TIML NEWS) Three men have been arrested on suspicion of raping a woman and reportedly live-streaming the footage on Facebook.
A woman contacted police in Uppsala, Sweden on Sunday morning to say she had seen a gang rape broadcast live in a closed group on the site, the BBC reported.
The attack is thought to have taken place in an apartment in Uppsala while the victim was “close to unconscious”, reported The Sun.
The online witness reported one of the men as having said “You have been raped,” and then laughing at the end of the video.
Josefine Lundgren, 21, who called the police when she saw the footage, said she saw one of the men tear the woman’s clothes off and lie on top of her. Speaking to Swedish tabloid Expressen, she also said one of the men had a gun.
Facebook Live showed that there were 60 other people simultaneously watching the broadcast, she said. One viewer wrote a comment beneath the video which read: “Three against one hahaha,” Lundgren added.
Others who saw the footage told Swedish media that they had seen a second video in which the same woman denied being raped. However there was speculation that she may not have done so of her own accord.
The men were still filming the follow-up video when the police arrived, according to Sweden’s state broadcaster SVT.
Another viewer who saw the footage told Expressen they “thought it was a poorly orchestrated joke”. Wow That’s insane smh…sound off below!!!
