Two teenagers charged with assault


Geelong crime investigation unit detectives have charged two teenage girls over an alleged assault at the waterfront at the weekend.

Police said witnesses had reported seeing a group of girls approach a 15-year-old girl near the waterfront between 7.30pm and 8pm on Saturday.

Police alleged the girls demanded the victim hand over her mobile phone before seriously assaulting her.

The victim was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

It was also alleged the girls took the victim’s phone.

A 17-year-old Grovedale girl was charged with robbery and assault offences on Tuesday, while a 16-year-old Whittington girl was later charged with robbery, affray and assault by kicking.

Both will appear at a children’s court at a later date.
