Nurse, 20, brutally bashed after giving strangers lift home from party

A 20-year-old nurse has been brutally bashed and had her car stolen by two strangers she gave a lift home from a party in Western Australia.

Tamryn had been at a small house warming in Mandurah, south of Perth, when she agreed to give the two men a lift home on Saturday night.

She told 7 News she had no idea of the trauma she was about to endure.

Ten minutes into the trip, the men asked her to stop the car at an intersection in Lakelands.

“They punched my throat into the side of the car window,” the emotional nurse recalled.

“I was choked, I was kicked in the stomach a number of items, scratched on my back, my head was punched in a few times.”

Unaware her finger was broken, Tamryn chased the men down the street screaming at them to return the keys to the Mazda 3 she had worked three jobs to save for.

Left bruised and stranded on the side of the street, she started knocking on random doors pleading for help. Bronny Edwards was at home when her doorbell rang.

“There was a young lady outside who looked really, really distraught and was begging for help,” the Good Samaritan said.

While her car has since been found, Tamryn said she has lost all trust in people folllowing the attack.

“I was just trying to be decent,” she added.  “This is what happens now when you try to help people.”

Police are still on the search for her attackers.
