Atlanta police are investigating a sexual assault at Opera nightclub after video of the incident was posted on Facebook.

Officer Jarius Daugherty said the department began receiving calls from people who had seen the assault on a Facebook Live video early Sunday morning. The Atlanta Police Department has opened an investigation into the incident at the club on Crescent Avenue in Midtown.

The video “appears to show a woman being sexually assaulted in a local nightclub,” Daugherty told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. It is the policy of the AJC to not name victims of sexual crimes.
