LETHBRIDGE: Three Lethbridge girls arrested by Regional Police Thursday night face a series of charges, including assault and robbery.
Around 11:30 a woman called police, saying her and three friends had been attacked and robbed by three other women, while walking through Galt Gardens. She reported that after passing the suspects, they were jumped from behind. They were assaulted and a purse and shoe were taken.
A short time later police found and arrested all three suspects (ages 15, 17 and 18) who were still in Galt Gardens.
They all face robbery charges connected to that incident, as well as several counts of assault for other matters after the robbery.
The names of the 15 and 17 year old can not be released because of their age, and the name of the 18 year old has yet to be released, as police continue to investigate her identity.
