While on the ground, police said the suspects continued to kick the victim until she eventually screamed for help.  

About 15 minutes after the Washington Avenue robbery, the same group allegedly robbed a 29-year-old woman near 10th Street and Pine Street. In that case, the victim told police she was punched in the face and kicked while on the ground.

An officer near the scene saw as the girls were fleeing and was able to arrest 3 of the four suspects.  One was able to get away, police said.

All three suspects, who are ages 12, 13 and 14, were booked into the Juvenile Detention Center and are being charged as juveniles. 

This news comes as another juvenile was arrested for a downtown robbery and assault of a 32-year-old man in the 300 block of 10th Street.
