This is the horrific moment a disabled girl has her head smashed into a table during a brutal bashing at the hands of three teenage girls.
The 17-year-old victim was lead to a picnic spot in the Gippsland town of Moe, Victoria, in the early hours of Monday morning, where she was tortured and repeatedly bashed.
The disgusting attack was filmed on one of the offender’s mobile phones and shared to Facebook, Ten Eyewitness News reported.
During the attack, the 17-year-old victim, who has an intellectual disability, was forced to inhale glass, believed to be from her smashed iPhone.
Her hands were burnt on a hot barbecue, her head was repeatedly slammed into a wooden picnic table and she was kicked in the face.
Her devastated mother said her daughter was tricked into going to the park, believing she was meeting up with her boyfriend.
The mother, who cannot be named, said her daughter was left ‘black and blue’.
‘She’s unrecognisable. She can’t put her glasses on because her cheekbones are so swollen,’ she told Ten News.
She said her daughter would ‘never be the same again’ after the horrific attack.
The victim was taken to hospital after the attack, where she was treated for serious injuries to her face.
She is now recovering from the vicious attack at home.
The alleged offenders were three teenage girls, two 15-year-olds and one 12-year-old.
The girls have since been charged with assault and robbery.
The 12-year-old was released on bail, but the two 15-year-old girls were not, Ten News reported.
Detective Senior Constable Michael Thek said the assault was extremely serious.
‘The footage is pretty graphic and a lot of senior police officers here say it’s one of the worst assaults they’ve seen in 30 years or so,’ he told Ten.
