Teen girl slashed in vicious street attack

A terrifying attack has left a teenage girl in hospital with severe cuts, after a night out with a friend on Sydney's north shore on Friday night.

The 15-year-old girl had been hanging out with a 16-year-old boy in Willoughby, on the Lower North Shore of Sydney, about 10.50pm, when they got into an argument with another couple.

The vicious attack occurred just 100 metres from the Channel 9 Headquarters in Willoughby.

Police and ambulance crews were called to the scene, where they found the young girl seriously hurt.
