The Latest: Police probe alleged threats to assault victim

CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago police official says investigators are looking into a mother’s claims that her daughter has been the target of online threats since being sexually assaulted in an attack streamed live on Facebook.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Wednesday that Superintendent Eddie Johnson has also reached out to the family to check on the girl.

The mother told The Associated Press earlier Wednesday that her daughter is scared to return home and the family is being harassed by neighborhood kids. She also says that since the attack, people have posted threats on Facebook that “they are going to get her” daughter.

No arrests have been made in the attack, which police say involved five or six young men or boys. Authorities say about 40 people viewed live video of the attack, and none of them reported it to the police.
