Damn, that headline sounds ominous, right? It should — this is a brutal story and you may be instrumental in solving it. Unless you’re Reddit. Thanks, but no thanks, Redditors.

A manhunt is currently underway for a 19-year-old Massachusetts man, Rashad Deihim, who is on the run after posting a rape and assault video to Snapchat. He is considered armed and dangerous.

The victim, a 16-year-old girl, was beaten, choked, raped and left for dead in the woods. Her attacker(s) filmed the attack and portions were uploaded to the ephemeral photo/video site. Two others, a 17-year-old male (not pictured) and 18-year-old female have also been arrested in conjunction with the rape/assault, but the family of Deihim claim to not know his whereabouts.

A friend of the victim saw the footage on Snapchat and contacted police. They were then able to locate the victim, who had been severely beaten, suffered broken bones and was “ripped” and naked. She had lost consciousness and had to be revived at a hospital.

“I want justice, I don’t want this to go away, I want them to pay for what they did,” the victim’s mom told local reporters. Hopefully, she gets it.
