SHAMOKIN — Three juveniles have been charged with riot and other offenses in connection with a March 30 melee in the 300 block of South Fifth Street.
Patrolmen Shane Mowery and Raymond Siko II filed the charges against a 15-year-old Shamokin male, a 17-year-old Shamokin male, and a 17-year-old Coal Township male.
The 15-year-old is charged with a felony of riot and misdemeanors of simple assault and disorderly conduct. He is accused of punching a 16-year-old female in the face during the fracas, causing injury.
The two 17-year-olds are charged with riot and disorderly conduct for participating in the melee.
Six adults were previously charged in the bruhaha, including Summer J. Dickson, 18, of 812 E. Dewart St., Shamokin, who turned herself into police April 13.
Dickson is charged by Mowery with attempted murder and other offenses for allegedly stabbing Zolange Otero-Rivera in the neck and face area during the fracas involving approximately 20 people.
Otero-Rivera, who was transported and admitted to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville shortly after the melee, has since been discharged.
Dickson remains in Northumberland County Jail in Coal Township, where she was committed following her arraignment before Magisterial District Judge John Gembic III, who denied her bail.
Also charged with riot and other offenses were Judith P. Tinsley, 48, of 812 E. Dewart St., Shamokin; Tyasia Braggs, 18, of 1517 W. Walnut St., Coal Township; Devon Franklin Fleming, 25, of 812 E.
