WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT

Horrifying video has emerged of two teenage girls brutally attacking a disabled woman at a busy train station.

The teenagers are seen punching and kicking the woman with Down syndrome at Melbourne’s Southern Cross station in footage posted on social media.

In the video, a teenage girl is seen delivering a brutal blow to the woman’s face.

The same teenager delivers a flurry of punches before another girl runs up and punches the woman from behind, knocking her heavily to the ground.

The woman lies helpless on the ground and is given a merciless kick to the head.

“That was (the) goal, you got what you deserved b****,” one of the woman’s attackers was heard saying.

The attack was cut short after an elderly man bravely intervened by standing between the woman and her attackers.

USA Online Post Australia has contacted Victoria Police for comment.

Juvenile crime experts say incidents are often staged with the aim of posting the videos on social media to get ‘likes’ and attention.

On Friday, a video emerged of a teenage boy being brutally beaten by a gang of eshays.

The sickening incident was apparently part of a feud between warring ‘postcode gangs’ in suburban Brisbane.

The victim, covered in blood, is told by his attackers that he is ‘guilty as hell’.

“I don’t know who you are,” the boy replied.

“Fuck you,” she replied to her merciless attackers.

The video shows the boy being grabbed by the hair and beaten with what appears to be an electric cord.

Accompanying comments suggest that the violence was prompted by a rivalry between two gangs, identified as ‘Cabra’ and ’27’.

Last year, NSW police were forced to issue a warning about so-called ‘fight club’ videos in a small country town after teenagers started making punch-ups to film and post on social media.

Primary school-aged children and even parents have been caught participating in the bizarre phenomenon in Casino, in the Northern Rivers region of NSW.

NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Gavin Wood slammed the disgusting behavior and called out the parents who were caught watching the fights.

“In terms of social media platforms being used, these trends go beyond stupidity and recklessness, these acts are crimes,” he told The Daily Telegraph.

‘Filming yourself committing a crime and posting the video online is a surefire way to get yourself arrested.’

Assistant Commissioner Gavin Wood explained the fighting appeared to be not only a police issue but also a community issue.

“Everyone needs to take responsibility and be in line with the old saying, ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ … that’s what I’m talking about,” he said.
