Woman with medical condition bashed in Mitcham by group of African youths


A woman with a debilitating medical condition has been bashed by a group of youths after doing the shopping in Mitcham.

Jacqui had just left Coles with three bags of shopping when she was set upon by three to four youths of African appearance wearing hoodies, their faces covered at 6am on Friday.

She says she was kicked while she was on the ground.

‘They kicked me in the back and and I fell over and they kicked me in the head,’ she told Neil Mitchell.

‘They were laughing.’

She said they called her a ‘white b***h’.

‘They were bashing me for fun.’

A man in a car nearby ran to her aid, managing to scare off the offenders

‘If that man hadn’t gotten out of the car, they definitely would have kept going,’ she said.

Jacqui, who suffers from Lupus and Fibromyalgia, said it was terrifying.

Police are investigating the incident.

No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information is urged to come forward.
