A man was arrested in Sydney on sunday night for the sexual assault of a 16 year old girl, after the girl and a group of 7 other 14-16 year old girls assaulted, and attempted to rob him.

Harry Peter Johnstone, 35, of Glebe, was walking along Jackson Street, Glebe, when he was approached by the group of 8 young women, one of which was armed with a baseball bat. According to Johnstone, they demanded his wallet and phone. When he refused, the girl armed with the bat hit him in the face, fracturing his cheekbone, while the others punched and kicked at him.

He then snatched the bat away and proceeded to attack the girls, seriously injuring two of them - one of which is in a medically induced coma, after having developed a blood clot on the brain from being struck in the head with the bat. The other is likely to lose sight in one eye, according to medical staff.

When one of the girls fled into a nearby alley, Johnstone is alleged to have committed the crime in a sort of 'revenge attack' for the assault.

In court, Johnstone expressed little remorse for his actions, claiming that "the girls brung(sic) it on themselves. When they hit me, I just lost it." His lawyer argues that Johnstone had diminished responsibility, due to the trauma of being attacked and hit in the head with a baseball bat, and that the impact of the bat may have given him short term brain damage, impairing his decision-making ability.
The young women are allegedly part of a well-known gang of female teenagers that has been terrorising the Glebe area for months, committing widespread vandalism, mugging, assault and other minor robberies. Local business owners and residents when questioned seemed to all share a similar perspective as this publican: "Well, aside from him, you know - raping the one girl, all I can say is that they got what was coming to them. Here's hoping the rest of them pick up on the lesson".

edit: Ok I get it, I would laugh if he didn't rape the chick, but I'm pissed he fought back. he deserves a beating

He was getting mugged by a bunch of girls. One had a bat and hit him in the head, he snatched it off her and hit 2 and sexually assaulted one.

Reread it.

Crazy series of events. Looking out your window and seeing that.

One comatose, one half blind, and another raped.

Karma must have been building up for that one for a while.

This is going to go down in history as an historic case that's for sure.

That's crazy. The smart thing to do would have been to call the authorities...not rape her. The people of UG are seriously f'd up if they agree with this man.

I don't agree with the rape, but I don't really care about that he hit them back with the baseball bat.


I personally never retaliation-rape anyone to get revenge. (Nor do I rape people at all )

Ok, that's just great. He stooped down to their level. Stealing on any level under any circumstance is wrong, so is violence, so is rape.

I'm all for batting gangsters in the face, but you're idolizing a man that raped a 16 year old. What the ****, man?
