Cruel Teen Girls Arrested after Recorded Cell-Phone Video Beating
Sauk Village Park, IL—This quiet South Suburban town was the scene of a vile and brutal attack on a teen girl. The attackers also teen girls ganged up on the victim, Mercedes Michaels, 17, of South Chicago Heights beating her as she lay restrained on the ground while they used scissors to cut off her pretty and long hair.
Michaels seen on the Today Show is wearing hair extensions in the photo above to cover the scalping she received from the young thugs.
The crimes charged should also include armed robbery since they used a weapon to forcibly rob the victim of her hair. They also burned the victim with a cigarette lighter.
Four girls were arrested for this crime including, Sarah Kraft, 17, of Park Forest, and Marcelena Castillo, 17, of Steger. Two of the girls were not identified by authorities since they are juveniles 15 and 16 years-old.
As for the offenders here I’d hope to see them tried as adults and locked away from society for a minimum of five calendar years. Lower animals are never this cruel and we euthanize them for far less egregious conduct.
