NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Four teenagers have been arrested, a fifth is in custody and a sixth is still on the run in the case of a vicious beating of another teen at a Brooklyn McDonald’s.
On Saturday, a 16-year-old girl turned herself in to police in connection with the brawl, police told CBS2. Mercedes Wilkinson is charged as an adult with robbery and gang assault, CBS2’s Dave Carlin reported.
Police charged 17-year-old Tilani Marshall with second-degree robbery and gang assault after she turned herself in on Friday.
A court clerk said Marshall has a warrant out for her arrest on a different case, but did not have the details, Gold reported.
In court, Marshall didn’t speak a word.
Outside of the courtroom, Marshall’s attorney, Audrey Thomas, said her charges are a mistake.
“This young lady did not commit any robbery or any other serious felony charges and that will be proven,” she told 1010 WINS’ Gary Baumgarten.
