Police hunt young thugs who recorded vicious attack on 13-year-old schoolgirl

Incident happened at around 4pm on Sunday at Buttercrane Quay

Police are appealing for help in catching those responsible for what has been described as a “vicious assault” on a teenage girl.

The incident happened in broad daylight on Sunday.

And what has made it all the more sickening is that the attack – which happened at Buttercrane Quay – was filmed.

Police want anyone who can help catch those responsible to come forward.

The 13-year-old girl was set upon at around 4pm on Sunday.

She was assaulted by a group of young people while one of them stood back and openly recorded it.

Police are asking anyone who witnessed the incident – or anyone who believes their own child might have been involved – to come forward.

If you can help contact the PSNI on the non-emergency number 101, quoting ref 1142 of the 04/02/19.
