Teen attacked by pushbike trio

Witnesses to a brutal assault at Surfers Paradise yesterday evening are being urged to come forward.

It's after a 17-year-old girl was allegedly attacked by three girls riding push bikes, while she was walking along the Gold Coast Highway shortly after sunset.

The trio apparently knocked her to the ground at 5:15 on Monday night and repeatedly punched her in the head, before riding off with her wallet and phone.

The teenager had to be taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital for treatment but her injuries weren't life-threatening.

Police were still looking for her attackers on Tuesday morning.
