Detectives with the 3rd District Investigative Section are asking for the public’s help to identify six suspects in an assault and robbery of two female juveniles inside Ellsworth Place.
The incident took place in mid-afternoon on Oct. 2, when a 16-year old and a 17-year-old were inside a fourth-floor mall restroom and were confronted by the six suspects.
