    Default A Disastrous Violence (please check grammar error)

    Dear native speaker teachers, I am practising putting what information I got in my own language into English. Please point out the errors I might have made. Many thanks in advance!


    There was a terrible violence in one of the middle schools in a central province last month. A girl student and one of her female classmate were assaulted unexpectedly outside their classroom. After being beaten cruely for a while, the girl was stabbed in the face, which resulted in a deep rift of more than 16 cm. The cut bled terribly and the girl was turned down by a local clinic on the grounds that the cut was so deep that it was unable to treat it properly.

    It is said that the gang who assaulted the girl student was made up of two males and 6 females. They were the father, brother and relatives of another girl student of the class who had previously quarreled with the victim. The eight of them drove in the campus in a car and when their girl identified the victim, they swamped towards the victim and another girl student, kicking and slapping them relentlessly. When they had had enough of their beating, the younger of the two males took out a knife and made a cut in the victim's face , after which they left the school proudly.

    People can't help spreading this terrible violence to one another , all wishing mass attention will be drawn so that the wrongdoers would be held for justice as soon as possible.
