A 15-year-old teenager is undergoing treatment for a traumatic brain injury in Gennimatas (Thessaloniki). Last night, he was severely beaten by a group of seven, who took away his mobile phone. The crime took place near the Evosmos City Hall.
The outraged mother, in a conversation with GRTimes.gr reporters, said that she was ready to pay for any information that would lead to the identification of those responsible. “My child miraculously survived. I will do my best to find these cowardly villains! My child fell, and they continued to beat him violently, ”says the victim’s mother.
Shocking words of the mother of the student, who was attacked in the very center of the city, before dark. The incident took place at about 21:00 when her son was with a friend in Evosmos Square. “The guys went for a walk and, tired, they stopped and sat down next to the church. At that moment, a group of seven people approached them, believing that the teenager had photographed them. The hooligans ordered the guy: “Let’s go away, we need to talk.” And for some reason he obeyed them.
Near the city hall, the group took the teenager’s phone and, flipping through the archive, made sure that the boy had not photographed anyone. Nevertheless, the hooligans violently attacked him and began to beat him. According to the victim’s mother, at least four out of seven people hit her son in the head and neck, even when he was lying on the ground unconscious. Her son had bruises on his face and body. And due to the fact that he was wearing braces, his lips were also injured.
“Maybe he was threatened, or maybe he was just in shock and therefore did not immediately call the police,” explains the boy’s mother. She reported that there was information that the perpetrators were a group of seven people, believed to be between 16 and 18 years old, and some of them lived in the Dendropotamos area.
“My son didn’t provoke anyone. He is a very quiet and kind child who never caused problems. He didn’t even know those guys. He just held his cell phone in his hands,” says Ms. Michelle Cucuyanni, mother of the brutally beaten boy.
Reward for information leading to the capture of the culprit
On Facebook, the mother posted a corresponding photo of her son, saying that she “will reward whoever saw or knows something about the incident.”
