Teenage Scottsbluff Girls Accused Of Attacking Homeless Man In Park

    Six Scottsbluff girls ranging in age from 13 to 17 face the juvenile equivalent of felony charges for an alleged attack on a homeless man in a Scottsbluff park earlier this month. 

    Names have not been released because of their ages and because none has been charged as an adult.

      Court records show all 6 girls have been charged with the juvenile equivalent of felony 2nd-degree assault and felony use of a deadly weapon. Five were charged with MIP, 4 with obstruction, and two with possession of drug paraphernalia.

    Scottsbluff police were called to Pioneer Park a little before 6:00 pm on October 3rd by a 51-year old homeless man who said he’d been attacked by several young girls. Officers reported the man had visible minor injuries to his face and head.

     A short time later, 6 girls apparently under the influence of alcohol and matching the descriptions given to police were stopped by police  in an alley 

      Four of the teens were taken to jail pending transfer to other facilities with the 2 remaining girls released to their parents or guardians.

      Searches of the scene of the alleged attack yielded evidence that included a knife, a hatchet, and a large, broken glass alcohol container.
