Teens ‘forced woman into oral sex and beat her’, while streaming attack live on Facebook

Two teenagers wanted in connection with viral video posted on Facebook Live that shows the sexual and physical assault of a woman are in police custody, according to the Gulfport Police Department

Haleigh Alexis Hudson, 19, turned herself in to police around 7 p.m. Wednesday. She was arrested on charges of felony kidnapping and sexual assault.

Ezzie Johnson, 17, was arrested by police around 8 p.m. Wednesday. He faces a charge of felony kidnapping.
Officers at 11:46 p.m. Tuesday responded to a report of an assault on the 3100 block of 7th Avenue and learned a woman was sexually and physically assaulted while being recorded on Facebook Live.

Gulfport Police Chief Leonard Papania said officers worked through the night and obtained warrants for Johnson and Hudson.

Johnson, who will be charged as an adult, is accused of filming the video at Hudson’s home.

The victim is a 23-year-old woman. Papania said additional charges of abusing a vulnerable adult would apply if the victim is mentally handicapped.
The viral video was removed from Facebook, but a copy of the video was posted Wednesday morning. It has gotten around 48,000 views on Facebook, Papania said.

“I can’t help but be disturbed by the incredible numbers of shares and views of this crude and despicable event,” he said.

“We videotape pain and suffering, then we share it and then we view it over and over.”
