Police said the attack on Monday evening took place following an earlier incident involving Dea-John and his friends during which they were subjected to racist language.
The Guardian understands the abuse is believed to have included the N-word.Not a racist incident, a single report in local newspaper:
Mr Hayes said: “My daughter can’t remember anything, she was unconscious at the scene for an hour - they took over an hour to revive her.
“However, we have gathered information from witnesses who have come forward.
“She was out with her younger sister and was walking to the taxi rank in Brighton to go home.
“As she walking past Burger King, three black girls came out and ran up and attacked her.
“Witnesses say that these three girls were in Burger King having an altercation with someone in there, they got ejected and as they came out, took it out on my daughter.”
I can't wait to see what happens when the real story abour Dea-John's killing comes out in court.
