(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested after showing the world how a man raped her teenage friend rather than calling police.

The woman of Ohio, live-streamed the rape of a 17-year-old girl through the app Periscope, police said.

18-year-old Marina Alexeevna Lonina allegedly did nothing as Raymond Boyd Gates, 29, raped the woman, Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney Ron O’Brien said.

Lonina and Gates were arrested on charges of kidnapping, rape, and sexual battery among other crimes.

O’Brien said that the three got together at the man’s home in Columbus. Gates held the victim down and raped her while Lonina live-streamed the violent sexual assault.

Police received a call from a friend of Lonina, who was out of town and saw the rape on Periscope as it happened.

Lonina and Gates each face more than 40 years in prison if found guilty of the charges, O’Brien said.
