A stabbing that didn't happen?

It seems a serious crime in our streets, where children were among the victims, remained unreported to both the police and to the children's services of the NT Government.

We strongly believe the following occurred: A woman and her three young children were attacked by six to eight people in the Target carpark, Todd Mall, at 8.30pm on Saturday, April 7.
She received a wound, inflicted possibly with a knife, which required 14 stitches. 
Her son, in his mid-teens, was apparently stabbed, and a younger son had his jaw broken. Another child and the woman were bashed.
The attackers demanded money and were given $50. They tore a gold chain off the woman's neck.
The crime was not reported to the police, and we don't know why not.

Neither was it to the Department of Family and Children's Services (FACS). ERWIN CHLANDA investigates.
