A 15-year-old girl allegedly at the centre of a violent outbreak in Coogee on Friday has handed herself into police.
Police are investigating a 15-year-old girl allegedly at the centre of a violent outbreak that took place in Sydney’s eastern suburbs on Friday.
It comes after shocking footage emerged of a teen in a black bikini attacking two other young sunbathers sitting on an oval near Coogee Beach.
The women appeared to be engaging in a heated argument before the teen could be seen dragging one of the other girls by her hand and viciously attacking her on the grass.
In a statement provided to news.com.au, a NSW Police spokesperson said officers have spoken to a number of youths involved in the incident that took place at Coogee Oval.
“Officers from Eastern Beaches Police Area Command commenced an investigation following reports a teenage girl had assaulted two other girls,” the spokesperson said.
“The group dispersed before police arrived.
“Following inquiries, a 15-year-old girl attended Maroubra Police Station and spoke with the Youth Officer about 2.30pm yesterday (September 28).”
The spokesperson said the teen will be dealt with under the Young Offenders Act 1997 NSW.
Footage of shocking brawl was handed to The Daily Telegraph by a concerned parent who described it as “sickening to watch”.
“She can’t be let to get away with this thinking she can just attack people and not have any consequence, and the young blokes egging her on should also be tracked down and charged with inciting the violence,” the father told the publication.
The clip shows the teen hovering over three women who are sitting on an oval before charging at one of them — dragging her by the arm and then rumbling on the grass.
A group of young men can also be heard encouraging the duo on as the violence continued.
It is still unclear what provoked the attack.
