Three young girls say they beat up a mom for fun as she put her child on a school bus
NEW WINDSOR – Two 13-year-old girls and a 12-year-old girl have been charged with gang assault and endangering the welfare of a child after they beat up a woman as she was putting her young child on a school bus Tuesday morning at the corner of Route 9W and Ledyard Street in New Windsor.
When New Windsor Police investigated and located the three suspects, they told officers they were “mobbing” or “popping” on someone just for fun when they attacked the woman at 7:50 a.m. The 34-year-old mom was repeatedly kicked, punched and dragged by the hair by the girls as they walked in the area.
Two of the girls, who admitted their involvement to the police, were on their way to school and the third had been suspended when they attacked the woman repeatedly kicking and punching her and dragging her by her hair. She suffered head and internal injuries, cuts and bruises all over her body.
Police have charged the three girls with gang assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
Their names are being withheld because of their ages. They were processed and turned over to their parents pending a future appearance in Orange County Family Court.
