Bad girls appear to be running wild in Brandon.

Over the past couple of weeks, police have reported dealing with an unusually high number of incidents that involve girls under the age of 18.

It started on March 25, when a Brandon judge banned a 12-year-old girl from Facebook after she used the social media site to threaten two other girls.

Just a week later, on April 2, a 13-year-old girl from the RM of Glenwood (near Souris) allegedly kicked and punched another girl out front of the Provincial Building on Ninth Street in Brandon.

The next day, four teenage girls are accused of targeting a pair of girls in an apparently pre-planned assault in the Shoppers Mall food court that was videotaped and posted to the internet.

That assault is apparently linked to another incident, earlier that same day, in which a 14-year-old girl was attacked by two other girls.

Finally, earlier this week, police were able to track down and arrest a suspect in a pair of armed robberies at a convenience store — one in January, the latest on April 3. Their suspect? A 15-year-old girl.

Of course, despite the spate of crimes linked to local girls, there are still plenty of men being charged with crimes.
