Two teen-age girls have been charged with assault for allegedly attacking a 12-year-old girl on a school bus Jan. 20.

Detective David Barrancotta said the 13- and 14-year-old Tonawanda girls are accused of the Jan. 20 attack on a Kenmore girl who was returning home from vocational education classes in Lockport.

The suspects pushed and punched her and threatened to kill her with a knife, Barrancotta said. The bus driver stopped the bus four times, eventually calling police, he added.

The girl was treated for a concussion and other injuries in Kenmore Mercy Hospital, Barrancotta said.

The two are charged with second-degree assault, criminal mischief and menacing, Barrancotta said. The case will be handled through Niagara County Probation Services.

Meanwhile, a 14-year-old girl is charged with second-degree assault for allegedly attacking a 15-year-old Newfane girl Tuesday on Price Street, Barrancotta said.

The victim was treated in Lockport Memorial Hospital for a broken nose, Barrancotta said. That case also will be handled through county Probation Services.
