Greeley police have arrested a 17-year-old girl in the assault of a jogger in a city park.
Police Sgt. Joe Tymkowych said Thursday that a 47-year-old Greeley woman was jogging in the park Aug. 24 when she saw a group of teens watching a girl beat up another girl. He says the girls called the woman names and threatened her when she shouted at them to stop.
Tymkowych says the woman took out her cell phone to call 911 and was hit in the face several times by one of the girls. The woman said the crowd encouraged the girl to beat her up and some recorded the assault on their cell phones.
The Greeley Tribune reports that the suspect turned herself in.
