A five-year-old boy has been left ‘completely traumatised’ after being repeatedly bitten by a teenage girl in McDonald’s.
Charlie Vyse was pinned down in the middle of the fast food restaurant and bitten, slapped and kicked by the stranger, believed to be around 13-years-old.
He suffered wounds to his legs, hands and arms as a result of the bloodied assault, which his mother Jessica believes could have killed a child.
Jessica, 25, said: ‘I was terrified. Hearing your child cry, because he was screaming… it was probably one of the worst things that I’ve ever been through.
“As a mum, it’s just so horrific.
“I can’t even imagine how much that hurt because her whole weight was on him pinning him down while she was biting him. It was horrific.”
Jessica, Charlie and his little sister Elsie, two, were on their way back from a family day out when they stopped at the McDonald’s in Hampton near Peteborough, Cambs.
He had been holding his mother’s hand but she turned round after feeling his hand slip out of hers to see the girl on top of him.
A woman, believed to be the girl’s mum, was telling her to stop and allegedly said ‘I’m sorry, she’s autistic,’ according to the mother.
Jessica said the girl was “hitting, scratching, biting. Down his back, his bottom, his legs.”
She said: “I leaned down and I was saying ‘oh no, jump up’. As I got down to lift him up, I realised the girl was shaking her head and her teeth were in his back. He was obviously hysterical.
“Charlie was still crying. I managed to pull him away slightly but it was at least 30 seconds, and she was biting him all the way down his body as I dragged him.
“She was biting, hitting, scratching him. Then I fell back myself and had Charlie on top of me because I gave one last tug.”
The mum, who is a student children’s nurse, pulled her children away to the disabled toilets where she found blood running down a tearful Charlie’s back.
They then left McDonald’s, despite the girl allegedly trying to attack Charlie again, who was left “completely traumatised”.
Jessica claims the police initially failed to investigate the incident which happened in July but have since made inquiries.
Jessica says Charlie is now receiving support and counselling due to the trauma caused.
She said: “Charlie is getting the support he needs and counselling from the relevant people, so hopefully we can move forward from this.
“I just think the whole thing has touched upon a subject that is clearly delicate but that needs addressing.”
Jessica shared a post about the experience on social media, which has since been shared more than 7,000 times.
She wrote: “I’m so angry! I’m so so very upset! How can my child go through this, and yet no one is going to be held responsible?
“What is this teaching him? Who is protecting him? I’m trying so hard to be understanding to every aspect of the situation, but it just doesn’t seem right.”
She added: “I just feel like Charlie is being failed and I just don’t know what to do?!”
Jessica says after pursuing the issue with the police and writing about the incident on social media, they are now willing to take further action.
Jessica said: “The police have picked up on the case and have updated me since.
“They are taking it seriously and are very much aware.”
Jessica also said she empathised with the girl’s mum, but added: “It’s awful having to lay with your sobbing child most nights and seeing such fear and confusion in their eyes!”
