Teen Girl Attacked, Robbed by Teen Girls in McDonald's Parking Lot
The ongoing problem of teenage girls beating and robbing people in Germantown’s Central Business District continued last week as another teenage girl was attacked by two teenage females in the parking lot of a fast food chain in broad daylight on a Sunday afternoon.
According to Montgomery County Police, as the teenager was attempting to park in the lot at the McDonalds at 12982 Middlebrook Road at 4:30 pm on Sunday, May 1, when two other teen girls blocked her vehicle from entering a parking spot. Once she did park and exit the vehicle, the two girls attacked her, knocked her to the ground, and stole her cell phone.
Police believe that the three girls may know each other because the victim did not provide police with a description of her attackers.
