A group of rapists were taken off the street after recording themselves gang raping a woman and streaming the video on Facebook Live, according to police in Sweden.
Uppsala police said that they raided the apartment in which the rape took place after receiving numerous phone calls that the men were live streaming the attack on Facebook.
The three men are 19, 21, and 25 years old, while the woman is 31. The three men are facing charges of kidnapping and rape.
According to the police, witnesses alerted the police around 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, as soon as they realized what was happening in the closed Facebook group.
There are 60,000 members on the Facebook group and hundreds were watching the men raping the woman. The video shows the men ripping off the woman’s clothes before they raped her.
When the three men were done raping the woman, they laughed and notified her that she was just raped on Facebook Live.
The men later streamed a second Facebook Live video in which they forced the woman to say that she was not raped. The video showed the police arriving at the scene and shutting down the video feed.
The woman was taken to a hospital, where she is being treated for injuries in connection with the sexual assault.
