In what could be a horrific incident, a gang-rape was reportedly streamed live on Facebook in Sweden on Saturday night. The incident took place in an apartment in Swedens Uppsala.
Ms Sannervik said a teenager and two men in their 20s were arrested in the city of Uppsala, north of Stockholm, after police received calls about the ongoing streaming from users.
Deputy chief prosecutor Magnus Berggren told Sweden’s TV4 channel investigators do not have the footage showing the alleged assault, and urged anyone with access to it to contact authorities.
The alleged gang rape of a 30-year-old woman on Sunday took place in Uppsala, about an hour north of the capital, Stockholm, and has shocked the Nordic country. “This rape was broadcasted live in a Facebook group,” police said in a statement.
Police swooped on the apartment in the city and detained the three men while they were still with the victim.
With Facebook Live any one can broadcast video directly from their phone.
On its website, Facebook says it will “remove content, disable accounts, and work with law enforcement when we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm or direct threats to public safety.”
