ROCHESTER, N.Y. – A 21-year-old man has been accused of raping a 14-year-old girl – and posting the video of the attack on Facebook.
Shahmell Robinson faces child pornography and rape charges for allegedly raping the girl in an apartment in Greece.
Court papers allege that in the video, the young teen appears to “be unconscious on a bathroom floor.”
While one man films the attack, Robinson “is seen repeatedly looking at the camera and speaking to the camera,” the court documents continue.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office has asked for the public’s help in finding Jordan McCloud, who allegedly recorded the video.
Investigators have managed to seize McCloud’s phone, on which there is another video of the girl passed out on a bed. Yet another video on the phone shows a group of people in a car talking about the rape and acknowledging that they know the girl’s real age.
Democrat & Chronicle reports that the FBI, Rochester, and Greece all collaborated on the investigation.
According to court documents, the victim did not know that she had been assaulted until she saw the video online.
In an interview with the police, the victim said that she had been drinking on the night of the alleged rape and did not remember having sex with anyone. She identified Robinson as a man she woke up next to on a couch.
Robinson is being held in the Monroe County Jail on $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond.
