One of the teenage perpetrators of this week’s sickening assault on a Mandurah McDonald’s worker has taken to social media to issue a foul-mouthed apology, claiming her violent outburst came in response to the labelling of her parents as “crackheads”.
Video of the 13-year-old girl hurling vile abuse and lunging at the Lakelands Macca’s worker – after her 14-year-old friend spat at him – went viral on Tuesday night.
Posting on her Facebook page today the girl, who the West Australian has chosen not to name, wrote she knew she was in the wrong but had been provoked.
“I’m sure yous think this little c… did this for no reason and whatever else so would i (sic),” she wrote.
“I wasn’t saying anything until he singled me out and said ‘and her parents are crackheads as well.’
“I fkn did not like my parents getting thrown in it for something my ‘friend’ had started.”
The teenager went on to say it was “filthy and wrong” for her accomplice to spit on the McDonald’s staffer and acknowledged she was “100% out of control loosing my shit (sic)”.
She blamed her actions on the workers “smart ass comments” and revealed she had been arrested less than six hours after the incident.
“I’m not looking for sympathy or understanding from any of yous cause I was in the wrong and (my friend) definitely was as well,” she wrote.
The incident caused long-simmering discontent among the Mandurah business community over youth crime to spill over this week.
It came just days after four teenagers aged between 10 and 15 ran amok in Mandurah Sportspower, costing owner Hayden Burbidge an estimated $100,000.
Mr Burbridge said ram raids, armed robberies and repeated break-ins had become commonplace and were destroying trade.
