Reported Sexual Assault Posted Online


Athens Police are investigating a reported sexual assault that was videotaped and posted on social media.

Images from the video were spread through twitter Monday.

 The Athens Messenger reports the victim reported the sexual assault to police Sunday night.

Jessica Thomas saw the images posted on twitter and was worried about what happened to the girl in the picture.

"I was just really disappointed and disturbed that they would feel the need to share that, that they would feel the need to do that," said Thomas.

The alleged assault happened in front of a Chase Bank near the Ohio University campus sometime over the weekend.

The video has since been removed.

Police told the Athens Messenger they would investigate the woman's report.
