A terrifying attack carried out by a gang of youngsters on Bournemouth beach has left two teenage girls too scared to go out on their own.Uh-oh….
Sisters Kimberley and Chanelle Drew and three girl friends were at the beach just west of Bournemouth Pier when the incident happened last Thursday.
Tomboy Chanelle, 13, and her friend had earlier joined in a game of frisbee with members of the 15-20 strong group, although others came over and called them “white trash”.
As they were leaving the beach, Chanelle pointed out one of the girls that had been nice to her. A male member of the group came over and grabbed her by the throat.Were the police any help? Well…
“He pushed her to the ground, and went to kick her in the head. She was curled up into a ball,” said the girls’ mother Sara Drew.
Kimberley, 16, tried to pull her sister’s attackers away but they went for her instead. Although there were several people around, only one man intervened to stop the assault.
Mrs Drew said: “The police said they were lucky they didn’t get stabbed or worse. We just want them caught. They can’t be allowed to get away with this.”That’s reassuring, isn’t it? So, why no descriptions? Who are we dealing with?
Well, not who you might think:
A spokesperson for Dorset Police said they had received a call at 5.28pm from a friend of the girls reporting an assault on two females by a group of Chinese males and females. They are thought to be in their late teens and the girls had seen some of them smoking cannabis.Chinese..?
