The victim's parent was the one who reported the issue to police after his daughter needed medical attention for minor injuries.

The accused have received four assault charges between the two of them.

The 13-year-old suspect is facing three assault charges at this time.

Police are reminding parents to monitor their children's online activity as "often youth are hesitant to come forward and could downplay an incident as they may fear retaliation from bullies."
