The father of a young girl accused of using a skipping rope noose to hang a disabled classmate claims his young daughter is unfairly ‘bearing the brunt’ of trolling.

Amber Yoon, 10, was allegedly hung from a tree with a makeshift noose in the yard of Queen of Apostles Primary School at Riverton, in Western Australia, last month.

The shocking attack led Amber’s mother Belinda to speak out publicly about the toll the incident – which was briefly investigated by police – had taken on her daughter.

Earlier this week Mrs Yoon took to Facebook in tears after receiving a summons for a Violence Restraining Order (VRO), taken out by the alleged bully’s father.

Despite a police investigation finding his daughter had no case to answer, the father said they had since been targeted by trolls online – and admitted he would ‘probably’ revoke the VRO to finally move on from the incident.

‘I am probably going to remove the request for the restraining order as the original problem that it was intended to resolve has been resolved,’ the girl’s father told Daily Mail Australia.

‘There is a lot of information that has been missed due to the hype, or that has since surfaced, and unfortunately, my daughter is bearing the brunt of that.

‘Police found that there was nothing wrong done. It wasn’t that my daughter couldn’t be charged… it was because they didn’t find any evidence of wrong doing.

‘I don’t want to bury my daughter either. The trolls of the world are alive and well.”

This is all so very sad. There HAS to be a better way!

  • Definitely seems like we are not hearing the complete story here! Where were the teachers and the supervision? This is disgusting


  • Well that’s confusing. If this girl was responsible for putting the rope around the other girls neck and hanging her, how can she be found to have done nothing wrong?! I feel we aren’t getting the full story, I think vital facts are being left out


  • It’s sad that children become the dupe in this. As adults we jump sometimes very quick to conclusions and feel the need to speak our mind. It would be good though when we would try to step into the shoes of all the different people involved and show some compassion and empathy.


  • Had the school been more responsible, contacted Amber’s Mum and her not find what happened out the way she did, there would not have been the issues there was.
