The 13-year-old girl who was allegedly tortured for five hours by three girls after being invited to a fake party has posted an emotional TikTok video.
The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, filmed herself lying in bed as she zooms in on her swollen face and badly bloodshot right eye.
She mouths the words ‘change your name or change your mind and leave this f***ed up place behind’ as the Roar song Christmas Kids plays over the video.
Three girls aged 12, 13 and 14 have been charged with luring the alleged victim her to a fake party and torturing her – with horrific footage of the alleged incident posted online.
Footage allegedly shows the girl being tied up, burnt and stomped on, with knives thrown at her and bottles broken over her face at a home in Tewantin, west of Noosa in the Sunshine Coast’s north, on Saturday, March 11.
The girl’s family has since gone into hiding and are living in an Airbnb after allegedly being threatened by the three accused.
Her distraught mother told 7News on Wednesday: ‘I have visions of my daughter on the floor after seeing her face the first time and the way she called out my name.’
The alleged victim added: ‘I wasn’t even thinking. I didn’t care what they had (allegedly) done to me. I just wanted to go home and see my little brother and my mum.’
The girl’s mother claimed the alleged perpetrators befriended her daughter two weeks before they invited her to a ‘party’ at their home.
When she arrived the girl was allegedly set upon by the three female attackers.
The disturbing video surfaced on social media earlier on Wednesday.
It shows two girls cornering the 13-year-old, hitting her, poking a knife at her and calling her names while laughing.
At one point as the alleged victim tries to leave, the girl holding the knife grabs her by the hair and pulls her back into the room.
The trio are accused of later making the 13-year-old girl shower to remove the blood.
‘Her face was swollen to a degree that you couldn’t recognise her. It looked like her head was going to explode,’ her mother told the Courier Mail.
‘She got stabbed in the knee, it just missed her tendon, but she also has a fractured wrist.’
The mum said her daughter, who initially tried to blame assailants other than the three girls, ‘should be dead’ after the attack.
The girl spent a week in hospital following the incident.
Queensland Police laid charges against the three girls allegedly involved in the incident on March 13.
In a statement on Wednesday afternoon, Queensland Police said three girls had been charged following investigations.
‘Police will allege on Saturday March 11, a 13-year-old girl was invited into a home where she was subsequently prevented from leaving and filmed whilst being assaulted, taunted and cut with a knife over the period of several hours,’ police said.
Among other charges each of the three girls face counts of assault occasioning bodily harm, deprivation of liberty and armed robbery.
All three are due to reappear in Maroochydore Childrens Court later this month.’
Queensland Police say investigations are ongoing.
