A ‘caring and polite’ boy, 14, is accused of striking a teenager 52 times in an  alleged fatal pack bashing at a housing commission home in Sydney’s west, a court heard. 

The accused boy, dressed in a collared shirt and jumper, sat up straight as he appeared by in Parramatta Children’s Court on Friday, days after and five others were charged with the 16-year-old’s murder.  

The young man is the second youngest of four teenage boys and two girls who allegedly took turns assaulting the cowering child in Doonside last Wednesday.

Police allege the ‘extremely vicious’ assault – which allegedly saw the boy stomped and jumped upon – occurred because the teens sought ‘gang notoriety’ in a conflict between western Sydney post codes.

Police allege the incident came about after the now-dead boy allegedly stole a pair of Apple AirPod headphones and was then lured to the address with the promise of a party.

During a bail hearing, Magistrate Stuart Devine heard teenagers cried out ‘finish him’, ‘pick him up, I’m going to f***ing throw him through the wall’ and ‘go hard, don’t stop until he is f***ing knocked out c***’. 

Incredible gesture: Doonside locals have covered the fence of the housing commission home with balloons, bouquets of flowers and candles - and are demanding 'justice' for the boy

The teenage boy was left brain dead, with two collapsed lungs and trauma to his face and body after the alleged bashing. 

He died in hospital three days later.

Prosecutors told the court that almost 24 hours after the incident, the 14-year-old accused boy  attended Granville police station wearing similar clothing.

The magistrate was told the boy had scratches and cuts on his hands and a small amount of blood to his shoes, and his release posed an unacceptable risk. 

Defence barrister AJ Karim accepted the boy was at the crime scene, but  argued there were several inherent flaws in the police case.  

‘This is a really sad matter … The attack was gruesome. I’ve watched all three footages and I think I’ll be lightly putting it if I describe it as horrendous. 

‘It is terrible. It is truly a stain on our community for an offence like this to occur.’

Mr Karim said the accused boy didn’t look like the child who was captured allegedly beating the teenager in mobile phone footage. 

The respected barrister asked Magistrate Devine to compare screenshots of the incident with the boy seen in court. 

‘In my respectful submission: those two do not look alike,’ Mr Karim said. 

Mr Karim also demanded to know how police could claim the boy had blood on his shoes at the police station.

‘How can the police possibly say that without any documentary evidence or analysis?’ he asked.

Mr Karim and solicitor Michelle Karim sought for the boy to be released on strict house arrest conditions while awaiting trial.

The child, who is blind in one eye, was described as ‘caring and polite’ in a letter from a Glebe youth worker, and the allegations as wildly out of character.

But Magistrate Devine refused the bail application, saying he wasn’t persuaded the prosecution case was weak. 

Outside court solicitor Ms Karim said the matter was ‘very serious’.  

The court appearance comes as an incredible balloon tribute was erected outside the home where the boy was allegedly murdered.

Photos shared with Daily Mail Australia show dozens of balloons attached to the fence of the housing commission property, along with bouquets of flowers, handwritten notes and a sign demanding ‘justice’. 

The windows of the home itself have been boarded up, and later graffitied, since Ms Dawson’s arrest last Sunday. 

A candlelit vigil was expected to be held on Friday evening. Other teens accused did not apply for bail and it was formally refused.

How a mate of six teens charged with the bashing murder of a boy, 16, in a postcode gang war was ‘found WEARING the victim’s jumper’ seven hours after his lifeless body was found

The jumper of a teenage boy who was bashed to death was found being worn by a mate of his attackers’ hours later, police claim. 

All six teens – including a 15-year-old girl who police believe was the ringleader, and the house’s occupant Kayla Dawson, 19 – have been charged with the body’s murder. 

In court documents, police detail how officers caught up with a 15-year-old at a home close to the crime scene about 11.45pm that evening.

That alleged offender was injured and had blood on his hands and shoes, a statement of alleged police facts said. 

The court document claimed the teen was with a 32-year-old man who ‘was observed to be wearing (the alleged victim’s) jumper which had a distinct red and blue coloured hood.’ 

The accused ringleader and another alleged participant, 13 were allegedly found at the older man’s home, police claimed.  

Police will allege a 15-year-old girl was the 'major instigator' of the attacks on the 16-year-old boy at Doonside

In court documents police allege a 15-year-old girl (left) was the ‘major instigator’ of the attacks on the 16-year-old boy at Doonside

Police alleged in court documents that the alleged ringleader was seen to be ‘smiling and laughing’ as the boy was brutally beaten last week. 

Court documents alleged the girl yelled ‘stomp on his head, put him in a f***ing grave’ and ‘go finish him off, go go go’ as if cheering her friends on.

Police allege that at one point she grabbed the boy by the hair and rammed his head into a wall, leaving a hole in the gyprock.  

The girl is also accused of kicking the boy in the face with the toe of her shoe, jolting his head back. 

The young woman allegedly also yelled ‘we’re going to take you to the other house so the other c***s can f*** you up’, court documents claimed.

The boy was allegedly forced to yell obscenities about the ‘inner west’ post code, court documents said.  

The teenagers allegedly took turns attacking the boy with someone eventually yelling ‘finish him’ at 4.39pm, police allege.  

It will be alleged the boy was left lifeless on the floor, not breathing, as many of the teenagers left the home.

About an hour after some of the alleged offenders departed, at 5.42pm, resident Kayla Dawson, 19, called 000, police alleged in court documents. 

Dawson told operators the boy was showing no signs of life, it will be alleged.

Paramedics performed CPR for a long time and managed to restart the teenager’s heart with a shot of adrenalin.  

However, despite their best efforts, the boy was placed in an induced coma upon arrival at Westmead Hospital. 

He was brain dead and had suffered blunt force trauma injuries to his face and body, as well as two collapsed lungs.

Doctors switched off the teenager’s life support at 10.02am on Saturday.  

The boy’s aunt revealed in a post to GoFundMe on Tuesday that his organs have been donated to five other people  in an incredible gesture. 

‘After this difficult decision that (the boy’s) mum had to make, she has just heard that through his organ donation, (he) has been able to save 5 lives.

‘What an amazing boy!’ 

The boy – who was was allegedly lured to the home on the promise he was attending a party –  leaves behind a grieving mother and sisters.

Also in mourning are his school mates – who have remembered him for their ‘chats and laughs …. in class and in the playground.’

‘You were always smiling and you were caring, funny and do anything for anyone,’ one tribute said. 

A former school literacy worker said: ‘He was always happy, a bit cheeky and chatty with me – though sometimes he chatted to get out of his literacy work. 

‘It is a great sadness that such a lovely soul should have been taken from this world at such a young age.’

The boy’s family are said to be ‘overwhelmed’ by support, with the community raising more than $43,000 for the boy’s funeral at time of publication.

Each of the teenagers have been charged with a series of offences – including murder – and are yet to enter pleas.  

Dawson was arrested at home on Sunday and formally refused bail at Blacktown Court on Monday.    

That same day, her one-time boyfriend Harley Robinson was allegedly filmed kissing the feet of western Sydney locals close to the suburb’s train station.  

Daily Mail Australia understands that Mr Robinson has spoken to police about the incident. 

He has not been charged with any offences and it is not suggested that he has committed any offence.
