Boy, 8, is given police warning after student, 21, ‘had her skirt lifted by gang of primary-school children on her Liverpool doorstep’

  • 21-year-old woman claims she was sexually abused by three Liverpool boys last year
  • Merseyside police investigated the matter after she posted a post to Facebook 
  • Three boys have received warnings, one of which is an eight-year old boy 

After a woman was allegedly sexually assaulted on her front porch, police issued three warnings to boys including one eight-year old.  

Three boys approached the 21-year old student shortly after her move into a Liverpool home last year. 

The trio she described as ‘cute’ initially, but when she requested them to depart at 10.30 pm, the one that grabbed her chest and another said to be trying to lift her skirt was alleged to have grabbed her.  

The woman told the Liverpool Echo: ‘I was like, “Yeah, that’s fine, take the chair” and they were acting really cute and things, and they were just like, “Aw thanks miss, thanks miss”.

“They wouldn’t even leave the front door, and it was like they had a split personality. 

Three boys were questioned about the alleged incident after a young woman complained she was groped in Liverpool

Following a complaint by a young lady that she was being groped at Liverpool, three boys were interviewed about the incident.

At this moment, the incident allegedly occurred. The mother claimed that afterward she felt helpless and confused because it was impossible to do anything with her kids. 

She continued, “All that I can think of is that if these kids do things now, then they’ll grow up and be terrible adults.”

“I think they do know what they are doing.” They pretend they don’t and try to make it seem cutesy, but in reality they are very knowledgeable.

“It’s strange because they’re children, so you aren’t meant to be scared. But you feel scared.”

Merseyside police made inquiries after seeing the post by the woman on Facebook and located the victim.

According to the police spokesperson, three children were given anti-social behaviour warning letters. Their parents had been contacted after Monday’s incident.

“Officers became aware that a post on social media was referring to the incident. They conducted inquiries to find out who the victim was and what the offenders were doing.

The victim was identified and reported to police that the group of three young boys approached her on the 13th December at 10.30pm. One lifted the skirt.

“The boys fled the scene by foot. 

After extensive witness investigations in the region officers discovered the three suspects, which included the eight-year old boy.

‘In collaboration with Liverpool Council Safer & Stronger Communities and partner agencies all three boys were spoken to in the presence of parents, explained the consequences of their actions and given anti-social behaviour letters warning them of their behaviour.

The incident was made known to the school the boys were attending and the appropriate referrals were made.
