Two 17-year-old girls were arrested Saturday in separate incidents in Cattaraugus County, sheriff's deputies said.
One, a Town of Machias resident, was released on $245 bail after allegedly striking Shantelle Lascelle of 9713 McKinstry Road in Machias several times with her fist.
The other, a resident of State Park Avenue in Salamanca, was committed to the Cattaraugus County Jail in lieu of $50 bail.
She was arrested on a bench warrant after failing to appear in Mansfield Town Court to pay a fine on a charge of unlawful possession of alcohol by a person younger than 21.
Authorities withheld the identities of the suspects as youthful offenders.
