– A teenage girl has been quizzed by detectives over a sickening attack on a bus.
The 15-year-old handed herself in to police yesterday over Sunday morning’s bashing on a NightRider bus, a Victoria Police spokeswoman said.
She was interviewed and released pending further inquiries. Investigators are looking for other people connected to the assault.
Stunned commuters said a gang was kicking an unconscious woman’s head “like a football” during the confrontation in the CBD.
One witness said the group of at least six men and two women were causing trouble and “looking for a fight”, before boarding the 667 bus at Swanston Street bound for Frankston.
A passenger, who rang the Herald Sun and asked not to be named, said the gang attacked the St Kilda woman, 26, after she asked them to “settle down” – Jon Kaila
