ONLINE BULLY VIDEO SHOCK
Teen girls in horror clip
A sickening video has emerged online of bullying by secondary school pupils at Burnside train station.
The 27-second clip appears to show one teenage girl attack another in the shelter at the station.
The alleged bully then looks to grab the victim’s phone before smashing it against the ground. It is believed the incident took place last week.
Although audio at the start of the video is not clear, the alleged attacker appears to accuse the victim of bullying her friend before physically attacking her at which point the victim’s phone flies out her hand.
The accused then forces her to
apologise, shouting “F*** ing say sorry.”
Another girl picks up the phone and says : “Do you want your phone smashed,” before the accused grabs it. At this point another girl can be heard saying: “No don’t, don’t smash her phone,” but the accused throws the phone onto the ground, with the item appearing to break into pieces.
The clip initially appeared on
Facebook, although it has since been taken down.
Shocked locals have reacted with horror to the video. One told the Reformer: “It’s absolutely disgusting. Their parents must be ashamed, it’s shocking that this kind of thing appears to be going on.”
A spokesperson for Police Scotland
confirmed a 14-year-old girl had been charged. A report is being prepared and will be submitted to the reporter for the Children’s Panel.
Wilma Bain, head of education for the Rutherglen area, said: “We have been made aware of this incident. As it is being investigated by the police we are unable to comment further.”
