Rape Of Unconscious Woman Live On Internet-Arizona Man Arrested
Phoenix police arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with the rape of an unconscious woman live on the Internet.

The alleged incident took place on February 26 on a Web site for live streaming video and chat.

The police are said to have got an incomplete recording of it.

They have booked Johnathon Richard Hock, of Surprise, on suspicion of kidnapping, sexual assault and surreptitious photographing.

"It's the first livestream of an actual rape that I'm aware of," eastvalleytribune.com quoted Parry Aftab, executive director of WiredSafety.org who has been in the Internet safety business for 14 years, as saying.

The 20-year-old alleged victim's name and the name of the Web site are being kept under wraps.

Hock reportedly regularly posted on the Web site, and had a live show.

A search warrant affidavit reveals that Hock and the woman were drinking at a gathering in a Phoenix home February 25, when she decided to go to bed about midnight.

It further states that at 5 a.m. on February 26, Hock went into the woman's bedroom, set up a laptop with an in-built camera, signed onto the Web site, and proceeded to rape her.

The young woman slept through the 30-minute episode.

A viewer in Lafayette, Louisiana, reported the rape to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

"She said while he was doing this he was laughing and making comments. She said (Hock) made comments about how the victim would never know what was happening to her because she was 'passed out'," the affidavit states

The Web site's owner revealed in a letter that he turned over a recording to police last week, and that the recording was never uploaded or posted.

E-mails sent to both Web sites seeking comment were not immediately returned.

A court document filed Monday states that Hock and the woman had an instant message conversation in which the former "admits to doing something" and admits that he knew she was passed out.

"Hock goes on to tell her he never raped her and it is not in his character. He blames the alcohol for what happened," the affidavit states.

Something similar happened to me. These rapists are getting so comfortable that they publicize their activities and why not they don't get caught and when they are nothing happens to them. The thing is she would have suspected that she had been raped but not known what happened to her because I bet you he spiked her drink with a rape drug. My rapist also denied that anything happened yet nasty pictures of me were distributed in my workplace. I cannot adequatedly communicate how damaged I am.

Something of this nature happened to me. My fiance did it. I did not know until I found the video tape of four different times throughout a four year time span. All while I was completley passed out and snoring.

Do you think he drugged you? I can only imagine how you must feel based on my own feelings and what happened to me was perpetrated by a coworker so I could say to myself that I can't trust people who I don't know well but to be violated by someone close to you must be the worst. The main damage for me came from what he did to me at work. I remained silent for a long while after it happened and the most important thing I have learned from this is to speak up and that the shame for the victims needs to go. Perpetrators use the victim's shame and that allows them to keep on to the next victim without missing a beat.
