Two teenage boys in Pueblo were arrested early Friday after investigators viewed a Facebook video showing an alleged sexual assault of a young girl, police said.
The suspects were taken into custody without incident about 2:15 a.m. at separate locations on the city's Eastside Neighborhood, police said. They are accused of "sexual assault - application of violence and exploitation of children - production," police said.
The department's Special Victims Unit learned about the video about 8 p.m. Thursday.
As of Friday morning, videos of the alleged sexual assault have been taken down, said Eric Gonzales, a Pueblo police spokesman. He added that investigators are looking into making more arrests on distributing child pornography.
"It's very serious that anybody who has (the video) and shares it can get those charges," Gonzales said.
