A schoolgirl was left with bruises and bitemarks after she was attacked in Prescot, Merseyside, as police officers arrested a mother and her daughter, who were released on bail
Shocking video showed the moment a schoolgirl was thrown to the floor and kicked in the head as police arrested a mum and her daughter.
The youngster was left with bruises and bite marks in the brutal attack on Tuesday, October 24, in Prescot, Merseyside. The video shows two girls fighting in the street before an older woman wearing a grey top intervened as she rushed in and appeared to pin the schoolgirl to the ground. A spokesman for Merseyside Police confirmed two people- a 29-year-old woman and a 12-year-old girl – were arrested by officers and have been released on bail.
The mum of the schoolgirl who was attacked told the Liverpool Echo: “I was mortified, I am pregnant at the minute, I have lost a stone. It could have been dealt with in other ways.
“As a parent, I have not let my daughter out of my sight and she has not been going to school. It is not safe for my child to go anywhere. My daughter won’t leave the house, she has been attacked not only by another child but a fully grown woman.She is physically and emotionally drained. She has bruises all over her, pieces of hair missing, and a bite mark, which has pierced the skin. I am sick to the stomach by it.”
A spokesperson for Merseyside Police said: “We can confirm two people have been arrested following a reported assault in Prescot on Monday 23 October. It was reported that an altercation had occurred involving two 12-year-old girls on Hayes Avenue at around 7.30pm.
