A 15-year-old girl who attacked a pregnant woman as she drove her children in a pram down a street in Perth has been jailed.

The teenager – who cannot be named for legal reasons – was sentenced to 12 months in prison after being found guilty of aggravated robbery following the attack in Ashfield on September 5.

The terrifying attack was caught on CCTV, with footage showing the 37-year-old mother lying on the ground after being approached by the daughter.

The video shows the teenager dragging the woman, then five months pregnant, by her hair along a footpath.

The two toddlers were thrown onto their backs in the pram as their desperate mother tried to break free.

“She (the mother) clung to that pram for life,” WA Police Commissioner Colonel Blanch said of the mother at the time of the incident.

“If that doesn’t demonstrate what a mother is willing to do to protect her children, I don’t know what does.”

The teenager claimed she was forced to commit a series of crimes by her cousin while using marijuana, WAtoday reported.

She was also charged with six similar offenses in the Midland, Midvale and Ashfield areas from August 30 to September 5, including attacks on an 11-year-old girl and another woman.

Judge Hylton Quail said the girl’s actions were “sickening” at Wednesday’s sentencing, but also explained how violence and anti-social behavior had been normalized due to her dysfunctional upbringing.

The 15-year-old pleaded guilty to the attack in Perth Children's Court, admitting she was trying to rob the mother.
