Queensland crime: Teenage girls charged in allegedly brutally assaulting a girl in a sleepover
Three teenage girls, aged 12, 13 and 14, have been charged with allegedly brutally assaulting another girl at a Queensland sleepover.
A 13-year-old girl attending an overnight stay in Tewantin earlier this month was “arrested from leaving and filmed while being assaulted, taunted and stabbed over a period of several hours,” police will claim.
The three accused girls were charged with offenses including assault, deprivation of liberty, entering a home and committing a crime and more.

The 14-year-old was taken into custody and is due to appear in court again in April.
The girls, aged 13 and 12, will appear again at Maroochydore Childrens Court at the end of March.
Videos circulating online, which 7NEWS.com.au has not released, show parts of the alleged incident, which reportedly lasted four hours and in which the victim was beaten and stabbed.
In one video, a girl can be seen hitting and yelling at the victim while another girl holds a knife in the air.
The victim says “Please don’t” as they boss her around before a girl slaps her across the face several times.
She tries to leave the room before the other girl pulls her hair back with the knife. The girl also hits her twice with the knife in the video.
In another video, the victim asks the girls not to hit her in the eye.
“She can hit wherever she wants, you stupid dog,” replies an off-camera girl.
A girl then slaps her while the receiving girl laughs and says, “Look at her face.”
“I’ve never seen anything so ugly in my life,” says another girl.
Thanks for going viral
An online post, apparently by one of the accused teenagers, says: “Going viral thanks guys love you”.
Immediately after the alleged incident, a video of the same girl telling the camera “we were basically just torturing someone” also circulated online.
The girl said she didn’t know if it was “like holding a hostage or something” because the group had just brought the victim home.
“We wanted to torture her for at least four hours at a time,” she said to the camera.
“It was bloody fun,” she said.
“So she totally sucks, I’ll send you pics of her face.
“It’s actually Munted Bro.”
Thought they were friends
The alleged victim has said in another online post that she thought the girls were her friends.
“The three girls who were my friends told me to come over, and I did,” she said.
“They locked the door and threatened me and said they will kill me and my family.”
The group of girls allegedly took their phones and shoes before hitting them with bottles, vaporizers and knives.
The girl was reportedly “stomped” on the head and temporarily tied up.
The alleged attack was “just for fun, for no reason,” said the girl.
