Residents terrified during out-of-control Facebook party

KAWUNGAN residents are demanding action after more than 100 drunken and destructive teenagers ran rampant through their neighbourhood on Friday night.

At 10pm at least 150 teens spilled on to the streets when a party on Mackay Dr,  was closed down.

Hervey Bay police have confirmed the party was advertised on Facebook.

Resident Keri McInerney said it was a terrifying situation that had left elderly residents shaken.

"There were literally teens shoulder to shoulder - there were hundreds of them.

"They were fighting, breaking bottles, urinating in our yards, ripping out trees and drinking."

A police spokesman said at least six people were arrested for fighting but no charges had been laid.

He said 500 people had RSVPd to the event on Facebook, but police did not believe that many attended.

Ms McInerney said it was one of many out-of-control parties that had rocked the suburb in the past five years.

"Most of these kids were 14, 15, 16 years of age," she said.

"They fought and abused the police, nothing seemed to deter them.

"It's time the council and State Government did something ... the child and the parents need to be held accountable for these parties."
