Three men have been charged after two teenage girls were allegedly assaulted in Sydney at the weekend.
About 9.40pm on Saturday (6 March 2021), emergency services were called to Pirrama Park, Pyrmont, after reports a group of people were fighting.
Police have been told a group of people were involved in a verbal argument, before two females – both aged 16 – were repeatedly assaulted.
