SCOTTSBLUFF - Six Scottsbluff teenagers, ranging in ages from 13 to 17, are charged with the juvenile equivalent of felony second-degree assault and felony use of a deadly weapon after being accused of attacking a homeless man in a Scottsbluff park in early October. 

According to court records, Scottsbluff police responded to a call from a 51-year-old man who said he'd been attacked by six young girls in Pioneer Park at approximately 6 p.m. on Oct. 3. Police says the man had visible minor injuries to his face and head.

A search of the scene of the alleged attack yielded evidence that included a knife, hatchet, and a large broken glass alcohol container.

Police were able to located the teenage girls in an alley. They were reported to be under the influence of alcohol. Four of the teens were taken into custody, while the other two were released to their parents or guardians. 

Five of the suspects were charged with minor in possession, four of the girls were tagged with obstruction, and two teens were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. 

The names of the suspects have not been released due to their ages and not being charged as adults.
