SILVER SPRING, Md. (WDVM) — Police are looking for six female suspects who attacked two teenage girls at Ellsworth Place Mall in Downtown Silver Spring earlier this month.

Police say the robbery and assault happened on October 2. It started inside a bathroom. The victims say the group of girls started exchanging words with the teens. Now, Montgomery County Police released a video showing the attack.
