Tenn. Sexual Assault Streamed Live On Facebook

Posted at 7:20 AM, Jul 20, 2017

Two arrests have been made after Chattanooga police say a sexual assault was live-streamed on Facebook.

News outlets report Sherman Hubbard, age 21, was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with attempted rape.

Tyasiza Roberson, age 19, turned herself in to the Hamilton County Jail on Monday and is charged with aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor, theft, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and driving on a suspended license.

Court documents say on July 7, Hubbard allegedly forced a 17-year-old girl to the floor and tried to pull her pants down, at which point Roberson allegedly started streaming the attack via Facebook Live. The victim told investigators she wasn't raped during the assault.

It's unclear if Roberson and Hubbard have lawyers.
