Trigger warning: Rape, sexual assault
A horrific incident has taken place over the weekend at Opera Atlanta. In video she captured herself, a woman named Jasmine Eiland appears to have been raped by a male attendee of the historic nightclub on the evening of January 19th.
Two separate live streams of the apparent rape were posted to Eiland’s Facebook account. They have since been removed for nudity, but one was retrieved and sent to EDM.com in which Eiland can be heard screaming “stop” and “please help me.”
The following day Eiland posted that she was okay, and asked that her friends refrain from calling or texting her. In a live stream she posted today, Eiland addressed some of the rumors surrounding the incident.
Opera Atlanta addressed the incident yesterday on social media by saying, “The disturbing matter that occurred last night has been brought to our attention, and we are working as diligently as possible in full cooperation with law enforcement.”
