Rape photos posted on Facebook

2010-09-17 22:06

Pitt Meadows - Canada's federal police force is considering whether to charge a 16-year-old boy who put photos onto Facebook of a young girl being gang raped at a party.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Inspector Derren Lench said on Friday that a 16-year-old girl was drugged and raped by several teenagers and adults at a rave party last weekend in a rural area east of Vancouver, British Columbia.

Lench says a 16-year-old boy was arrested for taking photos of the rape and posting them on the popular networking site.

The boy has since been released, but Lench says he could be charged with distributing child pornography.

Lench says those and other photos have since been widely circulated on the internet even though they have been taken down from Facebook.

Police have arrested one suspect in connection with the sexual assault.
