Three teenage girls are being sought by Chilliwack RCMP in connection with a vicious attack and robbery of another teenage girl on First Avenue last Monday night.

“Young girls robbing and assaulting another girl is very shocking and disturbing,” RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said in a news release.

She said the 17-year-old victim was walking home from work at about 10:30 p.m. when three girls approached her, swore at her and called her names, then stole her bag.

An unknown male saw what happened, chased the three girls and managed to return the victim’s bag. But the three attackers returned, grabbed the victim by the throat and demanded her money and Blackberry cellphone.

“The victim was choked until she gave her cellphone to the girls,” Hollingsworth said. The three suspects then ran away towards Birch Street.

They were all described as about 15 years old, under the influence of alcohol, and possibly white or aboriginal.

One suspect was described as about 5’ 2” tall, with medium-length brown, curly hair, a heavy build and wearing white shorts and a dark-coloured tank top.

A second suspect was described as “really skinny” and about 5’ 2” tall, with black hair and wearing a white sweater and jeans.

A third suspect was described as about 5’ 2” tall, with a thin build and dark-brown hair, and wearing a dark-coloured tank top and jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
