DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: A minor girl from Australia’s Darwin ended up in hospital after being allegedly assaulted by a group of adults on public transport. As per reports, the 12-year-old child, whose name has not been revealed, had taken bus number 4 for Casuarina shopping center from the inner-city suburb of Parap at around six in the evening on Sunday, October 2, when the violence against her took place.

According to Northern Territory police, the victim was first allegedly assaulted by a woman, who was on the bus with a friend. The girl then de-boarded the transport at Casuarina shopping center but again two adults reportedly approached her before attacking her. After carrying out the assault, the two alleged suspects escaped.

Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Andrew Kren said, “This was a disgusting and cowardly act.” Reports also said that the child was saved by transit security officers before her family took her to Royal Darwin Hospital for treatment as she got several wound marks and tearing because of the attack. 

Meanwhile, law enforcement officials have asked people to come forward if they have any information related to the case. Twitter was also enraged after the news of the assault came out. A user tweeted, “Haven't those buses got CCTV, and if so where is the footage showing the perpetrators of the offence🤔.” The second user wrote, “From what I hear about the abuse of kids, that would be irrelevant. More like they thought the little girl had pocket money and a Dan Murphy’s was near by.”

“ANY 1 GUESS WHO THE ADULTS WERE, WHO THE VICTIM WAS I HAVE AN IDEA JUST WHAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING LATELY BOTH HERE AND IN THE USA ALOT OF DISCRIMINATION AND VIOLENCE AGAINST PEOPLE NOT DOING ANYTHING WRONG EXCEPT 4 BEING OF A CERTAIN COLOUR AND IM NOT TALKING ABOUT W ON B CRIME,” a person shared. Another person commented, “Really we got to ask ourselves how did we get here!” “If the cops can't find this lot they wont be trying,” a tweet added.

In another unrelated incident, two Black teenagers were arrested for allegedly assaulting a White woman inside a bus. The suspects were reportedly 15-year-old and 16-year-old girls who executed the attack on July 25, within the 102nd precinct, on the victim — Jill LeCroix. Both of them were pressed with two counts of assault charges while carrying out a hate crime and aggravated harassment respectively.

LecRoix later spoke about the assault with The New York Post, “Before they hit me, the girl with the green hair said, ‘You probably like Trump! Don’t you?’ I said, ‘I love him.’ I didn’t see which one hit me first. The one with the green hair, she was saying she hates White people, the way they talk, hates white skin, the way their skin cracks. Saying she was gangsta. I was the only White person on the bus. By the time we started passing St. John’s Cemetery on Woodhaven, she started in on me, saying, ‘That’s where I’m going to bury you!’”
