Teens attack woman, fight police

Girls admit to drinking, police say

MADISON, Wis. - Two teenage girls face numerous charges after attacking a woman and struggling with police early Sunday morning, according to Madison police.

The victim, a 23-year-old Waunakee woman, told police she was leaving a restaurant with her friends in the 600 block of Whitney Way when she told a group of teens approaching the restaurant that the restaurant was closed. She said one of the girls in the group made a comment about her race and punched her 4-5 times in the head. Another girl threw a plastic bottle at the woman's head and punched the woman in the face several times.

Police said the group of teens fled when restaurant staff came out to assist. A restaurant patron helped police find the girls nearby.

The girls, a 15-year-old from Madison and 16-year-old from Belleville, struggled with police. Officers said one of the girls spit in an officer's face and kicked him in the groin. The other spit all over the back of the squad car. Police said both yelled and repeatedly threatened to kill officers.

Police said the girls admitted to drinking prior to the violence.

The teens are suspected of battery, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, discharge of bodily fluids at a public safety officer, battery to law officers and underage alcohol consumption.
