The girl was reportedly approached by a 14-year-old boy, a 12-year-old girl, and an 11-year-old girl when she was in Gallery Lane at Bayside Centre in Frankston at around 12.15 am on Thursday.
The gang allegedly demanded the girl turn over her phone and other belongings before stabbing her many times with a sharp tool, according to the police.

Officers from the transit police department reacted to the event and detained the kids.

Both a 12-year-old Highett girl and a 14-year-old Frankston boy have been charged with armed robbery and assault.
The two were given a later appearance date in front of a children’s court.
