Two Edgewater youths were charged as juveniles with assault with intent to murder Friday morning after a 15-year-old Edgewater girl was beaten up in Selby on the Bay, county police said.
The girl was treated at Anne Arundel Medical Center and released. Her assailants punched and kicked her, then hit her in the head with a bottle in Selby Recreation Park and left her for dead, police said.
The girl regained consciousness and sought help at several area homes. One woman let her call police around 12:10 a.m. Officers went to the address and took a statement from the girl before arresting both suspects, ages 15 and 16, at the home of one of their friends.
Police gave no motive for the attack. The girl told police she knows her assailants and that they came to her house around 11:30 p.m. Thursday to invite her to a beach house in the park.
The youths also were charged with aggravated assault and battery, police said.
