A group of teenaged girls are facing charges in relation to a string of bear spray attacks last weekend.
On Saturday, police responded to a variety of calls throughout the afternoon and into the evening.
An 18-year-old woman, two 14-year-old girls, a 12-year-old girl and a 32-year-old male were all reportedly assaulted with bear spray by people in a white truck.
Around 2 a.m. on Sunday, police received a report of a white truck racing around a neighbourhood had come to a stop because it had hit a tree. When police arrived, the truck was abandoned and later confirmed to be stolen.
On Monday around 4:20 p.m., police were dispatched to a report of an assault in progress.
As a 14-year-old girl was walking on the 1500 block of Elphinstone Street, three girls reportedly got out of a vehicle, assaulted her and then fled in the vehicle.
About three hours later, police were dispatched to 14th Avenue and Elliot Street for a report of a suspicious vehicle. Three masked girls reportedly threatened a 13-year-old girl with a knife.
Three Regina girls, two 14-year-olds and a 15-year-old, were arrested and charged Tuesday. The investigation into the incidents are ongoing and more arrests and charges could be forthcoming.
The investigators alleged the three teens had been in possession of the stolen white truck and another stolen vehicle that was found abandoned on Oct. 2.
One of the 14-year-old girls was also linked to another stolen vehicle recovered on Sept. 20, 2017.
All three were charged with assault with a weapon, but can’t be named in accordance with the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
They made their first appearances in Regina youth court Wednesday.
