Two Nelson teenagers have admitted beating a 16-year old schoolmate in an hour long ordeal before ordering him to strip to his underpants and lie in a crucifixion position while they mocked him and took photographs.
The victim lost consciousness during the attack at a Nelson school last month, in which he was punched, kicked, stomped on and beaten with pieces of timber. The two youths admitted injuring with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, aggravated robbery and kidnapping when they appeared in Nelson Youth Court on Friday. The court was told that the youths took the victim’s cashflow card and he offered to give them his PIN [card security] number in an attempt to placate threm. The two yoths will reappear in court on June 22.
