AURORA, Colo. — A trio of female juveniles went on a brief joyride Thursday night after assaulting a woman in Aurora and stealing her car, according to police. It all came to a literal screeching halt, though, when they plowed into a parked car.

According to Aurora police spokesperson Cassidee Carlson, the three juveniles approached a woman exiting her vehicle in the 3100 block of North Salem Street. Carlson said at least one of the juveniles struck the woman in the head — possibly with a rock — before the group stole the woman’s vehicle and took off.

The assaulted woman was transported to the hospital, and her injuries were unknown as of 6:15 a.m. Friday.

Shortly after an officer spotted the vehicle heading northbound on Peoria Street, the juveniles crashed into a parked car in the 5100 block of Ursula Street in Denver.

The three girls, whose names will not be released due to their status as minors, were all taken to the hospital after suffering injuries due to airbag deployment. They will all face criminal charges.
