A 13-year-old girl had her hair ripped out in a savage attack by a gang of children – while others filmed the brawl on their phones after school.
Olivia McKenna was walking home in Liverpool yesterday afternoon (April 19) when her mum says she was set upon by a mob of youngsters, ECHO reports.
The brutal assault, which was recorded by excited bullies, was shared on social media and has been viewed thousands of times.
In the clip, Olivia tries to defend herself as up to three children punch and kick her, regularly yanking her hair during the ugly scenes on Allerton Road.
When the teenager, who attends Archbishop Blanch School, tries to protect herself, other girls enter the fray to violently pull her hair and maul her.
A child screams at the victim: "I'll f****** rag you, you f****** little s***."
Victoria Brown, Olivia's mum, said her daughter loosely knew some of the girls – who are believed to attend a different school – from social media but said she had been attacked for no reason.
The beating has left Olivia missing hair near her forehead, where it was ripped out, bruises on her back where she was kicked, and a footprint on her head.

Victoria told the ECHO: "Olivia had got off the bus and was walking home with two friends when they attacked her in a gang.
"She tried her best to fight back, but someone else was always jumping in."
The 38-year-old added: "As her mum, I feel physically sick with what could have happened.
"I'd like police to press charges to ensure my child and other children's safety."
Merseyside Police said: "Yesterday (Monday 19 April) we received a report of an altercation between a group of youths in South Liverpool.
