Oklahoma City Police are appealing to the public for assistance in identifying three young suspects involved in a brutal assault on a teenage girl. The incident, which was captured on a cell phone camera and subsequently shared on social media, took place at the Sooner Haven Apartments in northeast Oklahoma City.
According to police reports, the attack appears to have stemmed from an argument on social media before escalating into a physical altercation. The video footage shows the three suspects shoving the victim to the ground, pulling her hair, and repeatedly kicking her in the head. The assault continued for an extended period of time.
The victim, who remains unidentified due to her status as a teenage girl, was transported to a nearby hospital with undisclosed injuries. Responding officers noted red marks on the right side of her face, ear, and cheek areas, as well as ripped-out earrings.
Following the assault, the same suspects allegedly attempted to break into the victim’s apartment and set it on fire. Oklahoma City Police Sergeant Dillon Quirk stated that the suspects could face charges related to assault, arson, and burglary, pending the decision of the District Attorney.
Oklahoma City Police are urging anyone with information about the identity of the suspects to contact Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300 or visit www.okccrimetips.com. Tips can be reported anonymously, and a reward is being offered for information leading to the identification and apprehension of the suspects.
