A gang of Sudanese teenagers allegedly bashed an autistic boy, 17, in an horrific attack on a Melbourne bus on Saturday.
Max, 17, was travelling alone on the bus at Tarneit, 25km west of the CBD, when five Sudanese men approached him and told him to hand over his mobile phone and shoes.
When Max refused, the gang attacked him, kicking him in the head so hard he suffered a concussion and required a CT scan to check for permanent damage, his mother said.
Max’s mother Julie told 3AW on Tuesday her distressed son called him in tears.
‘He said “mum I’m scared”,’ Julie said.
