Swedish woman ‘gang-raped for three hours live on Facebook’
Gang rapes woman in Sweden and broadcasts it on FACEBOOK LIVE

Swedish detectives are investigating the suspected gang rape of a woman after the three-hour attack was broadcast on Facebook Live.

A witness who watched the incident said the victim had her clothes pulled off by armed men and was sexually assaulted before cops arrived and turned off the camera in Uppsala, Sweden.

According to Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet, the assault took place in a flat in the town of Uppsala, north of Stockholm, on Sunday night and three people have been arrested.

Police were alerted by Josefine Lundgren, 21, who looked on in horror as she watched the live stream on a closed Facebook group.

Josefine Lundgren saw the broadcast and called the police.

She told Sweden’s Expressen: “He pulled her clothes off and lay on top of her.”

Police rushed to the apartment after they were tipped off and said the woman was said to be unconscious when she was attacked.

A few hours later she saw a uniformed policeman interrupt broadcast as he arrived at the scene. He confronted the men and demanded they come to the station before shutting off the webcam.

Another person watching the stream told the paper: “I first thought it was a poorly orchestrated joke.

A former member of the closed group told Expressen: “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?’”

“I think of course it is screwed, totally sick,” they added.

Regional police have begun an investigation and the apartment is being examined by forensic scientists.
