Though the boy was covered in blood after the incident, the people who witnessed it just laughed at him.

Thankfully, days after the incident, the girl involved has been found. However, the girl defended her actions through social media. She wrote an apology and claimed the man was being hostile toward her and her friends.

Pakenham cop Sgt. Marcus Coolen then said that they only became aware of the attack after the footage went viral. He stated, “The victim has now made a statement and doesn’t recollect the incident because he was very intoxicated. Apparently the male was being verbally aggressive. [The girl] was unaware it was being filmed.”
