The attackers allegedly told the pretty teenager that they would make her “look like Chucky” the scared and disfigured horror character.

The jealous rivals slashed at Julia Alvarez’s face and back, leaving terrible wounds that needed dozens of stitches. One wound on Julia’s back needed 20 stitches and surgeons were forced to cover her face with stitches to try to allow the flaps of skin to heal.

The horrific attack occurred as Julia was walking home after a visit to a friend’s house. Her attackers, who are sisters, began by hitting Julia and punching her to the ground. Julia’s chilling statement details how her attackers, aged 18 and 16, pulled out knives and told her: “Everyone says you are pretty. You won’t look pretty when we have finished with you. People will call you Chucky.”

After the terrifying assault, Julia was left covered in blood on the ground; horrified passers-by discovered the wounded teen and rang for an ambulance.

Originally, police in the Argentinian town of Juan Domingo Peron refused to investigate, but when Julia’s sister Yeni posted the shocking photos on Facebook and they went viral, their hand was forced. The police have now interviewed the sisters and 18 year-old remains in custody.

Yeni is devastated by the brutal attack on her sister; she said: “They were jealous of my sister for a long time and always abusing her and insulting her, but we never expected them to go this far. I have tried to stay strong for my beautiful sister but every time I see her I want to burst into tears. They have ruined her life. She says she wants to kill herself because when she looks in the mirror she so ugly now. It has ruined our family.”
