Man bailed over schoolgirl attack

Have your say

DETECTIVES are still appealing for information after a 24-year-old suspect arrested in connection with an attack on a schoolgirl was released on bail.

The man, who is from Hastings, was arrested last Friday on suspicion of assault after the 12-year-old Helenswood Academy pupil was hit over the head with a bat by a hooded thug.

The attack happened between 3.30pm and 4.15pm on January 27 when the girl was taking a short cut on a footpath adjacent to Sandrock Park just off The Ridge and opposite to the BP petrol station.
