Police have arrested five teenage girls for the brutal attack of a 15-year-old girl in a Brooklyn McDonald’s that was captured on video and went viral. The hunt continues for the six suspect.
16-year-old Mercedes Wilkinson turned herself into authorities yesterday morning and was charged with second-degree gang assault, a felony, and is being held on $50,000 bail.
On Friday, police arrested two suspects, Tilani Marshall, and a 15-year-old girl whose name has been withheld because she is a minor. Both appeared in court yesterday and were charged with robbery and gang assault in the second degree. 17 year-old Tilani Marshall was charged as an adult.
Another suspect was arrested Friday in Atlanta. Police removed the 14-year-old and her mother from a plane heading to Jamaica.
Aniah Ferguson, 16, who police are calling “the alleged ringleader” of the brawl, was arrested earlier in the week and was charged as an adult on Friday for robbery and gang assault. She is being held on $500,000 bail. Ferguson has been arrested half a dozen times since September, including an alleged attack on a pregnant woman in an emergency room.
