Police believe they have identified the teenage girls responsible for a shocking video showing a school bully attacking two young girls – battering one over the head with her own handbag before forcing both of them onto their knees to “say sorry”.
The video was uploaded to Facebook yesterday, instantly sparking outrage and has already been viewed over six million times.
The attack took place in Northfield, Birmingham, with two 14-years-old girls attacked by one girl who believes the young girls gave her “dirty looks”.
Inspector John Askew from Birmingham South Police, said: “The response from members of the public, clearly disgusted by what they’ve seen online, has been overwhelming and we’ve had lots of people getting in touch to provide names of those responsible.
“We have identified the two main suspects and plans are in place for one of the girls, a 16-year-old, to attend a police station for questioning later today. We understand the other main suspect is out of the country on holiday but we will speak to her upon her return.
“I would like to reassure everyone this is being treated very seriously and that the enquiry is progressing.
“Under no circumstances should anyone take matters into their own hands as this could leave them liable to prosecution themselves.”
