WATERLOO – A Waterloo teen was beaten and robbed by other youths who broke into her home Tuesday afternoon.
The 17-year-old girl was taken to a local hospital and suffered a concussion, black eyes, bloody nose, cut lip and other minor injuries in the attack, which took place at her mobile home Montero Drive around 2 p.m., according to police reports.
“It was malicious. It was like some sick setup. For no reason. She didn’t do anything to anybody,” said one person close to the family who asked not to be identified.
A group of youths entered the residence after kicking in the door and began assaulting the girl while she was sleeping.
She attempted to lock herself in the bathroom, but that door was broken open. The attackers then dragged the girl outside where the assault continued.
One of the suspects took her cell phone and an iPad before fleeing.
No arrests have been made in the attack, and the incident is under investigation, police said.
