Seven teenagers aged from 13 to 18 were arrested for beating and indecently assaulting a 13-year-old girl.
Four men and three women were arrested from July 27 to 29, under suspicion of unlawful detention, bodily harm, indecent assault, obscene behavior to children under 16, and child pornography production.
Police said the 13-year-old girl met four of the teenagers on social media in this March. They asked the girl to meet them in a park in Hung Hom last Sunday as some of them were not satisfied with her attitude.
They carried out multiple attacks on the girl when they met her, including beating, assaulting her with tree branches, sexual harassment, and filming obscene videos. The heinous act resulted in multiple bruises on her face and body.
Police said that some suspects are still at large and arrests will continue.
The police appealed to parents to pay more attention to their children during the summer holidays to stay away from bullies and strangers on social media.
