Three teenagers are facing kidnapping and sexual assault charges in MS for a "gut wrenchingly horrific" attack that went viral on Facebook Live, authorities said.

Hayleigh Alexis Hudson, 19, and 17-year-olds Ezzie Johnson and Kadari Fabien Booker have been arrested and remain in Harrison County Jail.

Papania said police are investigating claims from Facebook users saying that "the victim has special needs" and added that they will pursue additional charges against the suspects if those claims check out. It's not clear if they have attorneys. Tuesday night at 11:46 p.m. Gulfport Police responded to reports of an assault occurring on the 3100 block of 7th avenue.

The chief said Wednesday that the video was removed from Facebook but a copy was reposted and received about 48,000 views.

Kadari Fabien Booker is charged with felony kidnapping and sexual assault.

"Again, we've got to take a holistic view of why we're here and if we don't like where we are then we need to collectively look at what do we want to do to get away from here", he said. "In addition to investing in more people, we're also building better tools to keep our community safe". He will be charged as an adult.

The 15-minute profanity-laden video shows a man demanding that a woman perform oral sex on him in a bathroom.

"Suck that d***", the man says on the recording.

The original video had been deleted, but not before another Facebook user brought it to the attention of cops, telling them: "This is gut-wrenchingly horrific".

Hailey told The Clarion-Ledger she didn't know anyone in the video and did not contact police.

"I'm looking at the time date and stamp on it, and this is happening right now", Hailey recalled.

In a news conference, he said: 'I can't help but be disturbed by the incredible number of shares and views of this crude and despicable event. Those who are inspired by the thrill of the technology of sharing a horrific act live are totally responsible for their decision, and the existence of social media is not to blame. "It's really, really bad".

She said: "She ain't going home" and that the woman is going to perform the sexual acts "until her throat swells up".
