An eyewitness Joel Hamilton told Herald Sun – “I saw this group of teenagers holding the kid up against a window, crowding and circling him, he couldn’t get out of there. They were intimidating him. The kid had his hands in his pockets the whole time … he wasn’t going to attack.”
One of the student attackers hasn’t been back to school at Christian Regional College since police became involved.
The victim cowered in pain and covered his head, while his girlfriend shrieked in horror and the attackers continued their ruthless attack before the video stops.
The victim suffered an out-of-the-blue kick to the face as his hands were in his pockets, before he was punched in the face.
