A teenager who attacked two schoolgirls in Northfield has reportedly had her house vandalised.

The Sun reported that the 16-year-old’s home had been defaced with black spray paint after footage of Saturday’s attack in Sir Herbert Austin Way was viewed millions of times on Facebook.

It quoted a neighbour who said: “A bunch of adults turned up and started spraying graffiti.”

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, today admitted robbery and assault charges at Birmingham Youth Court .

She was remanded into youth accommodation and will be sentenced on August 3.

The court heard the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had received thousands of death threats online and to her mobile phone after her details were published online.

The defendant, who spoke only to confirm her name, age and address, told her solicitor she was too drunk to remember the incident and was “ashamed”.

The footage showed two victims being attacked while their bags were grabbed and emptied as a laughing crowd looked on.

They were also forced to their knees to apologise for “giving dirty looks”.
