"This attack is absolutely appalling. There was shock and revulsion in the Bogside community as word of this attack spread. I would like to extend my thoughts and sympathies to the young teenage girl and her family. It must have been a very traumatic and frightening experience.

"We want the perpetrator of this crime brought before the courts and I would appeal to anyone with information to come forward straight away and to take that information to the PSNI.
