Five teenagers with Churchlands Senior High School uniforms reportedly kicked and pounded on 20-year-old Matthew Henson in a train attack on Thursday
The attack on Stirling Station, in the north of Perth, put Mr. Henson in a critical condition
His accused attackers have been accused of serious theft and committing acts that are intended to cause serious bodily harm.
Allegedly the teenagers turned to Mr. Henson because they wanted his shoes and kicked and stomped on him in the attack.
It is also believed that one of the teenagers has stolen Mr. Henson’s shoes while another has taken his bag.
The alleged attack was observed by ten people and lasted only half a minute.
A Transperth customer service representative was the first to help Mr. Henson after the beating.
David Hynes told the public transport authority 7News: “We could help this victim in a minute or so.”
“This was extraordinary because it was broad daylight, a public place, an absolutely brutal incident,” said Mr. Hynes.
The police are also investigating an incident on a bus that travels to the station and may be related to the attack.
The bus was number 998 which travels a route from Nedlands to Stirling Station.
The schoolboys gang is expected to face Perth Children’s Court on March 3.
