THIS is the party girl who fled a Hilton hotel in her pyjamas after being slashed across the neck with a broken glass.
Shaunagh Philpott, 20, was caught on camera running into the street in her bathrobe before collapsing on the pavement.
She was taken to hospital with a three-inch gash in her neck following the attack in the presidential suite at the Manchester Hilton on Monday morning.
Armed police arrived just after 11am and arrested six people on suspicion of attempted murder.
Last night a close family friend told how she was relieved Shaunagh had survived. They said: “I’m just glad she’s still here. She’s not really OK, she’s up and down.
“She’s out of hospital and in the house now. She didn’t want to go to the party – she was forced to go to it.
“We know her boyfriend was involved in something but we don’t know what. We’ll have to wait for the investigation.”
Another relative added: “She’s very emotionally distressed. These people are the scum of the town.”
It emerged that the £655-a-night suite was booked for a joint birthday party by two sisters aged 17 and 20 plus four men including a professional boxer.
A source told The Sun that Shaunagh, of Chadderton, Gtr Manchester, was on a separate night out at the hotel when the group invited her and her pals to join them.
They said: “It was a mad party. They were invited up. It was pure coincidence they were there and someone saw them downstairs. A little fight broke out, a glass was broken and she was slashed with it.”

A Gtr Manchester Police spokesman said yesterday the 20-year-old man had been released on bail. The others were released pending further investigation.
