Four Arrested in Chicago after Man Duct-Taped and Tortured on Facebook Live
(CBS CHICAGO) — Four people are in custody in Chicago after a live-streamed video was released of a duct-taped man allegedly being tortured on Chicago’s West Side.
In the video, the victim’s clothes were cut, he was peppered with cigarette ashes, and then his hair cut with a knife until his scalp bled.
The incident took place Tuesday in an apartment on the 3400 block of West Lexington on Chicago’s West Side, a police spokesperson said.
The victim, who has special needs, was a high-risk missing person from northwest suburban Crystal Lake.
Police say he traveled to Carol Stream to meet a friend. They ended up in a stolen car, driven to the West Side, where the attack took place.
Four people are now in custody, police said.
