A school boy has been mercilessly beaten and trampled by a gang of teenagers in a train station.
The teenage victim was mugged at Coomera train station on the Gold Coast, Queensland, just before 3:30pm on Wednesday.
Shocking footage captured on a witness’s phone shows the boy being thrown to the ground, punched, kicked, and stomped on by more than half a dozen students.
The teens wear school uniforms that indicate they are from Upper Coomera State College and Foxwell State Secondary College.
One student appears to start the fight with the victim punching him repeatedly before others also join in and begin to land blows.
Shocking footage shows a teenager being brutally beaten by a group of students at Coomera train station on the Gold Coast.
Some students are seen in the background recording the brutal beating on their phones.
At one point in the video, the victim is cornered on a fence and continuously beaten by the students.
Moments later, the school boy is slammed against a wall, kicked in the leg, and then kicked repeatedly by the group as he lies helpless on the ground.
The police were called to the train station, but the students were gone when they arrived.
Video of the attack was shared on various social media groups.
“There is certainly an increase in this type of activity and that is supported by claims from schoolteachers about escalating violence in schools,” former Queensland superintendent Jim Keogh told Nine News.
“So, as resource intensive as they are, police have to consider that we’re going to have to put police officers in these schools that are at risk.”
The victim is cornered and repeatedly punched, kicked, and stepped on by more than half a dozen teenagers.
The Queensland Department of Education says both Upper Coomera State College and Foxwell State Secondary College are aware of the incident.
The department said both schools would take appropriate action against the students involved in the attack.
Police are investigating the incident.
Officers warned four boys ages 13, 14, 15 and 16 in connection with the fight.
It comes just days after Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk announced a proposal to reintroduce breaking bail as an offense in a bid to stem the wave of juvenile crime sweeping southeast Queensland.
