Bibb County sheriff’s deputies charged a 15-year-old girl with aggravated assault after she allegedly swerved an SUV into the path of a group of girls and injured one Monday evening.

The incident happened about 5:20 p.m. near the intersection of Jeff Davis and Harold streets in Macon, according to a sheriff’s office news release.

The 15-year-old girl had argued earlier in the day with her stepsister. Authorities say she took her mother’s 2000 Cadillac Escalade without permission and approached Jeff Davis Street on Harold Street where her stepsister was standing with a group of girls. She then hit one of the girls with the SUV, the release states.

The 15-year-old girl drove the Escalade back to her mother’s house, where deputies captured her after a foot chase. She sustained a minor injury running, and her case has been referred to juvenile court, the release states.

Emergency responders took the victim, another juvenile, to a hospital where she is listed in stable condition.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500.
