Girl, 10, among five arrested after teen filmed ‘being beaten up’ outside school

Police have launched a hunt for a teenage girl after shocking footage of a schoolgirl appearing to be viciously assaulted was shared as a ‘callous woman egged on the attackers’.

The horrific clip, filmed in Ashford, Surrey, was taken on Monday afternoon.

The attack was reportedly so severe that the 15-year-old victim’s hair was apparently pulled out and seen scattered down the road.

A 39-year-old woman and a 43-year-old man have been arrested in connection with the incident.

Police confirmed that three girls aged 16, 11 and 10 have also been arrested. The force say they are also trying to track down another girl, aged 15.

The footage was taken outside Thomas Knyvett school in the town, two miles from Heathrow Airport.

A Surrey Police statement read: “An investigation is underway after a teenager was injured following a violent altercation in Ashford on Monday, 6 February.

“Police were called following reports of a fight between a group of girls on the junction of Salcombe Road and Stanwell Road at around 2.30pm.

“The victim has had her welfare confirmed and been spoken to by the police.

“A 39-year-old woman, a 16-year-old girl, an 11-year-old girl, a 10-year-old girl, and a 43-year-old man have been arrested in connection with this incident.

“We are also looking to arrest a sixth suspect, a 15-year-old girl. She knows she is wanted in connection with this incident, and we encourage her to hand herself in to her nearest police station.

“We are aware that this incident will have caused concern among students, parents, and staff at Thomas Knyvett College, as well as the wider community.

“We would like to reassure you that an investigation is underway, five arrests have been made in connection with this incident, and we are working closely with Thomas Knyvett College as we investigate this matter.

“We are also aware that several videos of this distressing incident are circulating on social media.”

Inspector Maxine Cilia, Borough Commander for Spelthorne, said, “I was shocked to see some of the video footage of this fight and the level of violence from young people outside one of our local schools.

“Every school child should feel safe in the local community and not the target of any kind of violence as they leave school premises.

“Surrey Police are now investigating this incident and gathering further evidence with the full co-operation of the school.

“There will be extra patrols in this local area for reassurance and to enable local people to speak with officers “

The police are appealing for any eyewitnesses or anyone with CCTV, dashcam, helmet cam footage, or any images and videos on their mobile phones to get in touch.

A spokesperson for Thomas Knyvett said: “We are aware that this incident will have caused concern among students, parents, and carers.

“We would like to reassure our school community that we are taking all necessary steps to ensure this isolated incident is dealt with and that student safety is our paramount concern. We are supporting the police as they investigate this matter.”
