Two teenage girls charged over the brutal assault of a 15-year-old Warwick girl this week may spend Christmas behind bars after their applications for release from custody on bail were refused by a magistrate this week.
Shannon Angela Williams, 18, and her co-accused, a 16 year old who cannot be named due to her age, appeared before the Toowoomba Magistrates’ Court yesterday, Thursday 12 October.
They are both charged with assault causing grievous bodily harm in relation to the alleged attack on the 15 year old in the early hours of Tuesday, 10 October.
They were both refused bail and are now due to appear before the court again on Tuesday 19 December for further mention, and both remain remanded in custody.
The victim of the attack remains in a critical condition in Brisbane’s Princess Alexandra Hospital after being placed in an induced coma after brain surgery on Tuesday.
The assault allegedly took place near the intersection of Canning and Percy streets in Warwick, about 2am on Tuesday, while the victim and a friend were walking home from a party.
Police said the friend fled the scene to seek help and a passing motorist stopped to give the girl first aid and made contact with police.
Police alleged the victim was punched and kicked in the head while she lay on the ground.
The alleged offenders were questioned by police on Tuesday afternoon before being charged.
