A group of school children beat a young girl so badly she suffered swelling on the brain, her mum claimed. Police were called to Mollison Drive, Wallington following reports that a “female had been assaulted” just before 8pm on Monday, May 2.
The Met found a 15-year-old girl with injuries at the scene and she was taken to hospital for treatment but later discharged. No arrests have been made and inquiries continue.
In a post on a local Facebook group, the girl’s mother said her daughter was assaulted by “eight boys and girls,” outside St Elphege’s School on Roundshaw, and “part of the assault” was recorded. In A&E, the mum was told her child had “suffered a head injury resulting in swelling on her brain” and “fluid on her left sinus as a result from a fracture to the left side of her nose.”

Hoping to find the people who helped save her daughter, she continued: “A woman tried to help my daughter, I did not get her name as she spoke to my neighbour. Also, a man stopped his car and jumped out pulling them off my daughter and helping her.”
She added: “If anyone knows who they are can you please let them know just how much we appreciate what they did and how glad we are that there are still good decent people out there.” Before she ended the post she shared that her daughter had now been discharged and is recovering at home.
