Police are appealing for information following an assault on a 10-year-old girl outside a primary school in Plymouth.

The incident occurred outside the school gate of Leigham Primary School on Wednesday September 19th between 3-3.25pm.

A male, described as being aged 15-to 20 years-old, approached the pupil and kicked her forcefully to the groin.

She then screamed for help and the male threatened her before running in the direction of local bungalows.

The suspect is described as white, with brown hair, about 6 foot, 15 – 20 yrs old, wearing a black Adidas cap, grey hoody, dark blue jeans and white trainers.

Officer in charge PC Laura Totterdell said: “This is a horrendous attack on a schoolchild that was completely unprovoked and left her in pain and suffering from nightmares.

“We are appealing for anyone who may know the male or who witnessed the incident to please call police on 101 quoting police ref. EL/12/4214."

    Police need to find out if the 10-year-old girl has a history of kicking little boys in the testes. If she does have a history of assaulting boys' testes, even if it's isolated to just one incident, then there's a possibility that she assaulted some one who is close to the perpetrator. It would explain the motive behind the crime.

    Just to play devil's advocate, I'm going to point out that the assault might be motivated by a prior incident. Afterall, how many guys walk up to 10-year-old schoolgirls and kick them in the groin outside of school hours? Police need to find out if the 10-year-old girl has a history of kicking little boys in the testes. If she does have a history of assaulting boys' testes, even if it's isolated to just one incident, then there's a possibility that she assaulted some one who is close to the perpetrator. It would explain the motive behind the crime. I hope the girl recovers from the assault and the perpetrator is brought to justice. However, if the girl has a history of maliciously assaulting boys' testes then my sympathy for her drops to zero. It's not uncommon for girls to kick boys in the testes for no legitimate reason. Girls who do this to boys should be shamed just as severely as you lot are shaming the perpetator in this case. How many of you go about shaming girls who are responsible for maliciously assaulting boys' testes?

    I HATE people who pick on those much weaker than themselves - hate it! Especially 'supposed to be blokes' who kick and pick on little girls! To a ten year old, 15-20 year olds look like 'adults' to them.

    So to clarify it - Chavs/ anyone wearing hoodies, normally over their heads (even on a warm day)/ cap wearers, 'male' aged between 14 -25 are NOT men (even though they're not anyway *U 18!) We KNOW you are ALL weak! NEVER will be 'MEN'. Goes to show! Weaklings who go 'kicking' 10 year old children of the opposite sex, tut, tut. What are these little weaklings afraid of? If you want to take your actions out on a real MAN, try me...believe me, you'll only go crying to mummy! awwww! MAN UP and go to the police - PROVE YOURSELF!
