Middle School Teen Brutally Assaulted by 12 High School Girls Over Alleged Facebook Comments

Recommended Posts

An alleged assault by 12 high schoolers on a middle school girl has rocked headlines and social media platforms in Indonesia with the hashtag, #JusticeforAudrey.


The victim, a 14-year-old middle school student in Pontianak, West Kalimantan, was allegedly assaulted, physically and sexually, by a dozen high school students on Mar. 29, reports Kompas.


So far, only three of the 12 alleged culprits have been reported by the victim’s family to the West Kalimantan Police, who are currently investigating the case.


According to West Kalimantan Child Protection Services Deputy Head Tumbur Manalu, the girl was targeted over some comments that she wrote on Facebook.


“It began with boy problems,” Manalu was quoted by Coconuts as saying. “According to info [we have received], the cousin of the victim is an ex-boyfriend of one of the alleged assailants. On social media, they wrote comments to each other until the culprit went to pick up the victim because she was upset.”


Bringing along 11 of her friends, the said culprit went to the victim’s house and invited her for a chat. They then brought her to a park and began assaulting her.


Despite the multiple injuries she sustained, the victim managed to tell her parents about the assault only last Friday. On Monday, she was admitted to a hospital for treatment of wounds to her head and chest.


When the incident surfaced on social media with the hashtag #JusticeforAudrey, it immediately sparked outrage among Indonesian netizens.


A petition on Change.org was created for Audrey and has since racked up over 3.5 million people who wish to see justice for the girl and for the matter to be investigated by the court system.


The Twitter hashtag, which supposedly contained the victim’s first name, became a top trending topic in Indonesia on Tuesday.
