The girl, 14, and her friend were on a playing fields in Hull when they were reportedly set upon by a group of girls. Humberside Police say they are investigating the incident as a robbery
Two schoolgirls were brutally attacked and jumped on by a group of girls.
One of the girls, 14, and her friend say they were targeted at a playing fields in Anlaby, Hull.
The ordeal was filmed and shows one of the girls being dragged across the floor and kicked and hit in the head.
Humberside Police say they are investigating the incident as a robbery.
The victim’s mum, Vickie Wray, said she was “mortified” to come across the footage and could not believe that this was happening to children in Hull.
“I am so angry and upset at it,” she said. “This is not the first time something like this has happened around here.
“Parents need to be made aware that their children are going around and attacking other children.
“I spoke to the mother of one of the girls that attacked my daughter, but she only condoned what her daughter had done. That is unacceptable, as as a responsible adult you should be stopping your children from fighting.”
The girl said her neck was injured from whiplash after she was dragged by her hair during the savage attack. She was also repeatedly punched, slapped and kicked.
She said she recognised one of the girls but does not believe they had a reason to start a fight.
“At that moment I did not even know what was happening, it all happened at once,” she said. “They were also attacking my mate and I was concerned for her.”
The schoolgirl said the girls took her friend’s phone during the incident. She said the attack only stopped when a bystander called the police.
A Humberside Police spokeswoman confirmed it is investigating: “Officers are currently investigating a reported robbery following an incident yesterday on First Lane, Anlaby in Hull.
“It is reported that a 14-year-old girl was approached by two girls and is believed to have been assaulted. The victim’s phone was also reportedly taken.
“We are now appealing for anyone with information, or anyone who was in the area at the time, who has not yet spoken with us, to contact us on 101 quoting crime reference 16/84612/21”
