Bangor girl, 14, charged with throwing brick at car

BANGOR, Maine — A Parkview Avenue woman who was out on a walk noticed a group of teens in her neighborhood Monday and saw one — a 14-year-old girl — pick up a brick and throw it at her car, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday. The brick hit the driver’s side rear quarter of the vehicle.

Two girls in the group of three took off running, but a boy remained behind and told the woman where she could find the girls, Edwards said.

The victim went to the house of the girl who reportedly threw the brick and informed the girl’s guardian of what had happened, but the person refused to cooperate and the police were called at around 4:50 p.m.

After investigating the incident, the 14-year-old girl, who was not identified because she is a juvenile, was charged with criminal mischief, Edwards said. She was released to the custody of her guardian, he said.

Edwards said the girl might not have intended to damage anything when she picked up the brick.

“She threw it across the road and it hit [the] vehicle,” he said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
