A gang of children assaulted a 13-year-old girl and pulled her hair out, as others filmed the assault on their phones after practice.
Olivia McKenna was walking home from school in Liverpool on Monday afternoon, April 19, when her mother claims she was assaulted by a gang of kids, according to the Echo.
The vicious beating was captured on video by ecstatic bullies and posted on social media, where it has been seen thousands of times.
Olivia struggles to protect herself on Allerton Road in Liverpool, UK, when up to three children punch, kick, and pull her hair.
When the teenager, who attends Archbishop Blanch School, tries to protect herself, other girls join to violently pull her hair and maul her.
A child screams at the victim: “I’ll f****** rag you, you f****** little s***.”
Victoria Brown, Olivia’s mum, said her daughter loosely knew some of the girls – who are believed to attend a different school – from social media but said she had been attacked for no reason.
The beating has left Olivia missing hair near her forehead, where it was ripped out, bruises on her back where she was kicked, and a footprint on her head.
Victoria told the ECHO: “Olivia had got off the bus and was walking home with two friends when they attacked her in a gang.
“She tried her best to fight back, but someone else was always jumping in.”
The 38-year-old added: “As her mum, I feel physically sick with what could have happened.
“I’d like police to press charges to ensure my child and other children’s safety.”
Merseyside Police said: “Yesterday (Monday 19 April) we received a report of an altercation between a group of youths in South Liverpool.
“At around 4.10pm it was reported that a fight took place between a group of around 20 male and female youths on Allerton Road. It is understood a further altercation then took place in Calderstones Park.
“A 13-year-old girl was reported to have been assaulted and the matter is now under investigation.
“Officers attended the scene and spoke with the victim who suffered minor injuries and was left extremely shaken by the incident.”
Officers have asked anyone with information about the attack to contact them.
