Teen girls in street affray

A GROUP of youths, mostly teenage girls, allegedly used Facebook to organise a face-off in a Bellingen street, in what police described as an “absolutely disgraceful” incident.

Four people have been charged with affray and one teenager with resisting arrest following the altercation in Church St on Monday at 4.50pm.

Police said officers in the Bellingen Police Station heard the nearby commotion.

They went to investigate and found up to 30 youths watching an organised fight involving a number of young girls.

An officer who attended said the girls involved were “jostling”, “using foul language” and “intimidating members of the public with their hostility”.

Officers brought the confrontation to an end by arresting four teenagers and loading them into a paddy wagon for the short trip back to the police station.

A further four juveniles are also expected to be charged.

Police said the teenagers indicated in their statements the fight had been organised on Facebook following an ongoing feud on the social networking site.
