A mother has described how her 13-year-old daughter was approached by a group of boys who attacked her after she failed to give them her Snapchat details.

One of them pressed against her and touched her chest before pinning her to the floor, while another pulled his trousers and trousers down in front of her face and exposed himself, her mother claimed.

The mother, who was not named to protect the girl’s identity, told My London: “You kept asking [for her Snapchat] and she kept refusing.

“A guy got a little angry and pressed against her, touching her chest on her clothes.

“He pushed her back and sat on her and hugged her tight. Then one of his friends pulled his pants down and his pants in front of her face.’

A friend who was with her daughter in Romford, Essex, during the May 7 incident at around 3.30pm ran to seek security and police were called.

The girl didn’t tell her mother what happened outside the Premiere Cinema at the Mercury Shopping Center until a few weeks later, fearing she would no longer be allowed to go out with her friends.

Her mother said her daughter has dressed differently since the incident and she fears it has had a damaging psychological effect.

The Metropolitan Police said: “We are investigating an allegation of sexual assault by touching children that was reported to have taken place at Mercury Mall in Romford on the afternoon of May 7.

“There have been no arrests. Inquiries continue.’
