Epileptic teen, 17, 'tortured for an hour and forced to act like a DOG' by sick bullies
AN epileptic teen was "tortured for an hour and forced to act like a DOG" by sick bullies.
The 17-year-old, who has not been named, had just left his friend's flat in Kent went the gang of four attacked him.
His mum Karen Sinfield, 53, said the incident has left him in fear of leaving his home.
She told Kent Live: "They tortured him for about an hour making him pretend to be a dog in a dog bed.
"They spat on him and kicked him in the head. He’s epileptic."
He was so shaken he was unable to give a police statement, and she was horrified at cops' response to his fears.
Ms Sinfield said police merely replied: "What’s the point in calling us if you can’t give a statement?"
The attack comes as new figures revealed violent crimes have soared this year in parts of Kent.
In Tonbridge, crimes against a person rose from 3,371 last May to 3,891.
