Moment teen girls went wild at city train station

A 14-YEAR-OLD teenager from Eight Mile Plains has been charged with robbery in company after a group of three or four young girls allegedly bashed a 23-year-old female from Fortitude Valley at Runcorn Railway Station last week.

Upper Mount Gravatt Police Station OIC Snr Sgt Murray Crone said it was a "cowardly and vicious attack".

The victim was on her way home from work at about 4.30pm on Thursday afternoon when the assault occurred.

Snr Sgt Crone said the woman was set upon when she allegedly tried to take a photograph of the teens.

The victim was punched several times in the face and knocked to the ground, where she was kicked and dragged by the hair. She sustained a cut lip and facial bruising.

Police have since identified the other alleged assailants but are yet to formally lay charges.

They have released CCTV images of the teen gang in the hopes of speaking with any eyewitnesses or commuters who were approached by the same group.

Investigations are now being conducted by officers from the Morningside child protection unit.
