A MELTON, Australian teenager has narrowly escaped serious injury after he was the victim of a violent and unprovoked attack.
A video shared to Facebook viewed more than 64,000 times, shows 14-year-old Haydyn Wilson being violently bashed by a group of five older teenagers in an unprovoked attack at Woodgrove shopping centre in Melton.
The incident happened last Wednesday evening around 5pm.
Eyewitness Joel Hamilton said he heard a racket which got his attention.
“I saw this group of teenagers holding the kid up against a window, crowding and circling him, he couldn’t get out of there,” he said.
“They were intimidating him. The kid had his hands in his pockets the whole time … he wasn’t going to attack.
