THIS is the shocking moment a teenage girl and two boys allegedly attacked a pair of helpless pensioners before posting “sickening” videos of the assault on Snapchat.
A 15-year-old girl, along with two boys aged 16 and 17 have now been arrested in connection with the ambushes in Coventry which were filmed and posted online over the weekend.
The first clip showed the teenage girl walking up to a pensioner sitting on a bench in a park.
The girl squared up to the man and punched him several times before he fled.
A second shocking video appears to show two boys ganging up on another elderly man.
The distressing clip sees the young teens kick the man in the face and spit on him.
The clips were originally posted to Snapchat before eventually being shared on Facebook.
Chief Inspector Daryl Lyon from Coventry Police, said during the initial appeal: “These videos are sickening and we really need to understand what’s gone on.
“We are urging the kids and their parents to come and speak to do the right thing and come and speak to us at Coventry Central police station or phone us on 101.
“I also need the people who were attacked to get in touch. We want to make sure they’re OK.”
Police had previously urged people to refrain from sharing the videos on social media, saying the victims had a right to anonymity and that sharing the videos could have an impact on any potential future court cases related to the incident.
