Gang of teens allegedly threatens girl for talking about them

COVINGTON — An alleged gang of teen girls apparently is seeking revenge against another girl who they believe has been spreading gossip about them, according to a report filed by the Covington Police Department.

According to the report, a group of about six teen girls drove to the victim’s Chaney Drive home around 6 p.m. Sunday. One of the girls got out of the car and walked to the front door.

The victim answered the door, but when she saw who it was, she shut the door and went to get her father, the report states.

“(The father) said that the female standing at the door asked for (his daughter) to step out where they could ‘beat her a—,’” CPD Officer Brandon Wilkerson reported. “(The father) told them to leave his property and that is when the females began to curse at (him), telling him not until (his daughter) comes outside.”

The girls left when the man started to call 911. A short time later, though, the victim began to receive Facebook messages from the girl who came to the front door saying the group was going to “come back and shoot up her house and that they were going to beat her a— because they not fight fair,” the report states.

Another message allegedly stated, “I will have you put in a body bag because I will shoot you.”

The victim also showed the officer a picture the primary aggressor sent to her on Facebook where she was holding a gun pointed at the camera, according to the report.

The victim told the officer that she believes the girls are harassing her because they believe she has been talking about them behind their backs.

“(She) did say that the group of females inside the car was related to a gang called ‘PMG Ovalley and WAWG Gang,’” Wilkerson reported.

The victim was able to identify four of the girls who came to her home. Wilkerson advised the victim’s father to take out warrants and temporary protective orders on the girls. He also said he would provide extra patrol of the home.
