NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller has described the alleged vicious assault on two teenage girls during Sydney’s Mardi Gras festivities at the weekend as “appalling”.

Two 16-year-old girls were allegedly repeatedly bashed by a group of men about 9.40pm on Saturday night after a brawl erupted at Pirrama Park in Pyrmont.

Police were told an argument broke out which led to the girls being allegedly assaulted multiple times.

Mr Fuller slammed the alleged assault this morning, telling 2GB’s Ben Fordham it was “cowardly” and “disgraceful”.

“A cowardly act would be an understatement,” he said.

“I have never seen such disgraceful footage from grown men attacking two young girls.

“Irrespective of what sentence they get, they should be tagged cowards forever.”

Police, along with the Public Order and Riot Squad, attended the scene and arrested three men aged 29, 23 and 21 soon after on Pirrama Road near Murray Street.

The younger man was charged with affray and common assault.

The men were refused bail and appeared before Parramatta Bail Court yesterday.

They are due to front the Central Local Court tomorrow.

Investigations into the circumstances surrounding the incident are ongoing.
