Amelia Stephenson, 15, from Benfleet was at Thorney Bay Beach, Canvey, last Saturday night with friends when the gang attacked her, knocking her unconscious at about 9.30pm.
There were about 10 people in the gang and Amelia was punched at least seven times.
Emergency services went to the scene and Amelia was taken to Southend Hospital.Hmm, Thorney Bay. A place I wouldn't go in broad daylight without a squad of Marines.
“Amelia also suffers with Asperger Syndrome and has a help dog.”Sadly, not a Rottweiler!
“She left hospital at about 3am on Sunday morning. It was a completely unproved attack.”Errr, I think that should have read 'unprovoked'..
Claire said she feels hurt for her daughter following the attack on the island beach. She said: “Another girl complimented her on what she was wearing and while talking to Amelia the others attacked her.
“Amelia was face down on the ground and they were still hitting her.
“When I got to the beach, there were about three police cars and paramedics.
“She suffers with anxiety and this will make it worse.
“Police acted so quickly and made an arrest the same night.”Really? Amazing.
Wait, one arrest?
Police have arrested a a 14-year-old boy from Canvey on suspicion of wounding without intent and common assault. He has been released on bail until July 25.What about the other 9?
