Three Chicago teenagers are accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl and posting the attack on Facebook.

Prosecutors say 15-year-old Kenneth Brown, Justin Applewhite and Scandale Fritz, both 16, attacked the girl at Fritz' home on Dec. 15.

According to court records, Fritz took the girl to the basement of his home and assaulted her. Fritz allegedly brought Brown and Applewhite to the basement where they assaulted her as Fritz videotaped the rapes. Fritz was identified because he turned the camera toward his face.

Court documents indicate the video was first posted on Brown's Facebook account. It was later posted on Fritz' and Applewhite's Facebook pages.

The three were ordered held Friday in lieu $900,000 bail for aggravated criminal sexual assault. It wasn't immediately known if they have lawyers.
