An alleged sexual assault that took place in front of numerous students during Ohio University’s homecoming celebrations this weekend has led to serious questions about why witnesses reportedly snapped pictures and recorded video instead of stepping in to help the victim.
What’s worse is that these images were subsequently shared on social media. The female victim, who received oral sex, reportedly did not realize what had happened to her until she saw photos online the following day. She reported the incident to police in Athens, Ohio on Sunday, the Daily Mail reported.
