Teen girls attacked outside New Jersey mall; suspects sought

Police are investigating after they say three teenage girls were attacked outside a New Jersey mall on Friday.

Around 8 p.m., officers responded to the Deptford Mall, where three female victims say they were assaulted in the parking lot by two men and two women. A verbal dispute over a parking lot allegedly escalated into a physical assault, leaving two of the victims injured.

The victims told police that the suspects fled the scene in a white colored Pontiac with a New Jersey license plate.

Surveillance footage has since been released of the incident.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information about the alleged assault is urged to contact Det. Louisa Medany at 856-845-6300, ext. 1337.
