Teen girls attacked with chemical bomb

A WODONGA girl’s 17th birthday today has been marred by a callous bomb attack.

Police say the girl and her friend, a 15-year-old girl, were walking home from Birallee along Melrose Drive about 8pm last night when a 300 millilitre bottle was thrown from a car.

It landed a short distance from the girls and exploded.

Police later found the bottle contained a mixture of chloride and brake fluid.

While the girls were last night uninjured, police say the chemical mix could cause serious injury.

The car in question carried three males and a female.

Anyone with information should call Wodonga police on (02) 6049 2600.
