Four female students aged 14 to 16 are suspected of beating up and threatening to kill a 13-year-old girl in Klagenfurt (Southern Austria) last Saturday. The police said that she was tortured for more than an hour.
Five girls met just before 18.00 at Heuplatz in Klagenfurt where they started an argument and a fight. The students hit the girl but let her walk away again. After a while they went after the girl and beat her again in the car park in front of the youth centre in Waidmannsdorf.
According to the police, the girl was presumably beaten for longer than an hour: the girls spat at her, kicked her, pushed her to the floor and humiliated her. They also hit her in the face and made her kneel and apologize. Before they let her go home, they threatened to kill her if she called the police.
Nevertheless, the girl went to the police. She was taken to hospital in Klagenfurt with concussion and injuries to her stomach. A complaint was made and the police have identified the suspects but, as yet, no arrests have been made.
Only a week ago three children aged nine and twelve beat a twelve-year-old in a furniture shop in Innsbruck. The boy suffered concussion and injuries to his face.
