In one of the most shocking incidents, a woman was allegedly raped live on the internet. The prime suspect of the crime is 20-year-old Jonathan Hock who hails from Phoenix. Hock has been held in custody for allegedly raping a woman live on a popular video hosting website. According to officials at the time of the crime the woman who was being raped was unconscious.

According to the court document, the incident occurred at around 5 a.m. on the 26th of February, 2009. Hock used his laptop webcam to broadcast his sexual assault live on the Internet while his victim was sleeping. Officials have also confirmed that Hock and the victim knew each other for about a month when the shocking incident took place. Moreover, there are reports that the victim was asleep for over six hours before the assault took place. The victim claims that she did not know what had happened to her while she was unconscious until her friends who had seen the video on the Internet informed her. She told the police that she found the pictures of Hock lying naked beside her on the Internet later on.

The Phoenix police had issued a search warrant in order to check the website contents and get hold of the live video clip for evidence. The court documents have also revealed that the video contained a number of comments made by Hock. Hock commented that he was committing assault on the woman without her being aware of it. The duration of the video was five minutes and based on this evidence the Phoenix police have arrested Hock and booked him on charges of “two counts of sexual assault, one count of kidnapping and one count of taking a surreptitious photo.”
