Schoolgirl “screams for help” as thugs lauch horror attack in play area


The 13-year-old girl reportedly pleaded with her attackers to stop as they dragged her by her hair in front of the baying crowd.

Witnesses say they heard the girl screaming for help as up to 40 youngsters looked on.

Emergency services descended on the play area in Green Park after being inundated with calls about the vicious attack at around 5.30pm.

The cowering victim was said to have desperately tried to protect her face with her arms as she was repeatedly punched and kicked.

The attack happened just yards from where a talented artist was kicked to death by a group of yobs.

Reports say the crowd filmed the shocking attack on their mobile phones as the victim begged her attacker to stop.

She was rushed to Southampton Hospital with a serious head injury.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Hampshire Police on 101.

The attack comes after video emerged online of a schoolgirl bully beating up a male classmate.
