Bullying is a serious problem these days among kids and there is no telling how some will come out of it. In the case of a 13-year-old who was getting out of the bus, she was met by a mob of young kids waiting to physically assault her. The only problem here is that there appears to be no clear motive.

The girl was identified as Olivia McKenna who was headed home on Monday, Apr. 19 in Liverpool. According to her mother (Victoria Brown), Olivia was brutally attacked by some youngsters. The whole incident was captured by the bullies themselves and was shared over social media.

Olivia did try to fight off her attackers. Up to three children punched and kicked her at that time. Her hair was pulled as well in the ruckus which happened over in Allerton Road, Liverpool, UK.

The girl attended school at the Archbishop Blanch School. Girls were the ones who reportedly pulled her hair. The 13-year-old ended up missing some hair near her forehead and also suffered bruises on her back – a result of the kicks she got in the mobbing incident. There was even a footprint left on her head. The attackers are reportedly from a different school.

“As her mum, I feel physically sick with what could have happened,” the 38-year-old mother stated. "I'd like the police to press charges to ensure my child and other children's safety."

Officers who arrived at the scene were able to speak to the 13-year-old girl. Olivia was left extremely shaken by the incident.

Authorities are now calling on anyone with information on the incident. Messages can be directly sent to @MerPolCC on Twitter, Merseyside Police Contact Centre on Facebook or call 101 quoting reference 21000249397 or contact @CrimestoppersUK on 0800 555 111.
