A carjacking and beating was allegedly posted on Facebook Live, and that video led to at least one arrest.

The video reportedly gave officials with the Metro Nashville Police Department all they needed to make an arrest in the violent attack that was recorded live in Nashville.

The victim said she was assaulted by two people, one of whom she was meeting with because he reportedly owed her money for a vehicle belonging to her that he allegedly wrecked.

According to reports, she was punched in the eye by one suspect who also pulled her from her car by her hair. That’s when the second suspect reportedly grabbed her and beat her up.

The first suspect reportedly jumped in her vehicle and fled from the scene.

A woman at the scene, who was not named in the police affidavit, reportedly recorded the incident on Facebook Live. She told authorities she did not see the crime, but it was later realized she recorded the video.

The incident happened in October 2017. Arrested in the case on June 6 was Marcus E. Sharpe III. Authorities on Thursday said they’re searching for additional people who may have been involved or at the scene.
