12:02am–#Bridgeport CT–There is a very disturbing video on Facebook of a very small child being sexually assaulted by an adult.  This video has triggered a large number of calls to police departments in the area.   Bridgeport and Stratford Police received many calls.    Police said that unless the caller can identify the person, child or area where the video is originating there is nothing they can do other than report it to the FBI.  There is no way of identifying if it happened in Connecticut.     A viewer told us that her mother called Stratford Police and said they have the link and an investigator is investigating.  Police said not to forward the video but to immediately report it to Facebook.  Last summer Facebook faced an onslaught of disturbing photo images , but no video that we are aware of.  When we first asked our viewers if they knew anything about this we quickly received many comments and shares.  There were many angry and emotional comments as could be expected.

Again, if you know any of the people in the video or can identify the surroundings call the police immediately. Otherwise please report it to Facebook and do NOT forward it.
