A teenage girl will appear in court today charged following an investigation into an alleged assault in Sydney’s CBD last weekend.

Officers from Sydney City Police Area Command attended and spoke to two women – aged 23 and 32 – who had allegedly been assaulted by two females before the pair picked up the women’s phones from the ground and fled.

A second altercation occurred a short distance away and one of their phones was recovered.

Following inquiries, a 13-year-old girl was arrested after attending Day Street Police Station on Wednesday (1 November 2023).

She was later released and will be dealt with under the Young Offenders Act.
