Melbourne Teenager Beat Up And Has Her Hair Set On Fire
A teenage girl has had her hair set alight after being repeatedly kicked in the face and body in a terrifying robbery at a skate park in Frankston.
Seven people set upon the 15-year-old girl at the skate park last Friday.
One of the alleged offenders, a 13-year-old boy had been released on bail just three hours before the attack, after being charged with other offences.
Police have said that the girl was lord to the Cranbourne Road park at 9PM and started throwing chocolates at the victim before they pushed her to the ground and pinched her.
The girl was kicked in the face and body before one teen used their cigarette lighter to set her hair on fire.
"We believe a boy kicked her repeatedly in the face and body while she was on the ground," Senior Constable Collins said.
"It is alleged a [boy] then demanded her bag and mobile phone, while another teen used his cigarette lighter to set her hair alight.
"The group then ran off with her bag."
The girl managed to run home and was taken to Frankston Hospital with a fractured right hand and serious swelling and bruising to her face.
