Teen bashed, stunned with taser while leaving weekend party
A teenage boy has been bashed and stunned with a taser after leaving a party in Bundoora.
3AW Breakfast was alerted to the disturbing weekend incident.
Police have since confirmed they’re investigating.
It is believed two teenagers had just left a party at an address on Noorong Avenue when they were approached by a group of unknown youths shortly after midnight on Saturday.
The offenders asked one of the teens if they could borrow his phone.
As the 16-year-old victim removed the phone from his pocket, he was attacked by the offenders.
It’s alleged a conducted energy device was used during the assault.
Joe, a witness who was at the party, called in to 3AW Mornings saying he could hear the taser being used.
“As we tried to go around the kid on the floor, we could hear them taunting us, and taunting everyone else with them,” he said.
Detective Senior Constable Jason Antonelli said tasers have become more prevalent.
He told Neil Mitchell the victim is fearful the attackers could strike again.
“He had cruising to his scalp, and when he was being kicked he felt he was being tasered to his head,” he said.
