A woman streamed her own sexual assault live inside a nightclub at Atlanta. This led to an investigation after people who watched it on Facebook alerted police.

Officer Jarius Daugherty said the department received calls about the incident at Opera nightclub early Sunday morning.

Atlanta police announced they had identified and contacted the man who was seen in the video assaulting the woman. The name of the accused has not been released as investigation continues, police said.

The video “appears to show a woman being sexually assaulted” during her birthday celebration inside the club on Crescent Avenue in Midtown, Daugherty told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

According to the UK’s Metro, the victim was heard saying, “OK, OK, OK, no. Oh, lord. No, no, no” and the man said, “Shhh” and “Baby” in response.

The victim, who is no longer in Georgia, told police someone put drugs in her drink and then sexually assaulted her on the dance floor. The attack was captured by her as it happened and the video was streamed live on Facebook.

A police report obtained by the AJC revealed that a caller told police she saw a video of a woman being groped and possibly “being raped.”

After receiving calls, officers arrived at the nightclub and met with security. When they looked at the video, they realized it was recorded an hour before they arrived. Video of the sexual assault has since been removed from Facebook.

The Atlanta Police Department told Yahoo Lifestyle in a statement: “Atlanta Police Department Special Victims Unit investigators remain in contact with the victim in this incident.

The victim is no longer in the state of Georgia but is cooperating with investigators. Investigators have also identified the male we believe is seen in the video with her and have been in contact with him, as well. Club Opera has been cooperative and helpful to our investigators as we continue to look into this matter. We will not be releasing the male’s name at this time, nor any other details about the Department’s ongoing investigation.”

Management for Opera nightclub said in a statement on Facebook that they are cooperating with the investigation.

“At this time we have met with the Atlanta Police Department and have provided them with everything they have requested,” read the statement. “We will continue to aid and support their investigation in any way we can.”
