Two Brantford girls charged after 13-year old girl attacked

BRANTFORD, ONT-Brantford Police are charging two city youth  after  the father of a 13-year old girl reported she had been the victim of a series of serious assaults.

On September 29, 2020, Brantford Police launched an investigation that revealed three separate offences occurred within the last month. These assaults had been documented by video and made public on social media, further victimizing the young female. 

The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries and later sought medical attention.

 As a result of the investigation, the following charges have been issued under the Criminal Code of Canada:

 Accused #1:        13 year old, female from Brantford is charged with Assault x 3

 Accused #2:        14 year old, female from Brantford is charged with Assault x 1

 The investigation revealed the existence of an online social media “fight club” which features consensual and non-consensual fights between youth in the City of Brantford.

 Brantford Police Service would like to remind parents of the importance of monitoring the social activity of their young children. Often youth are hesitant to come forward and could downplay an incident as they may fear retaliation from bullies.
