Three teens have been arrested and charged in connection to an assault outside Lime Ridge Mall on Tuesday afternoon.

Hamilton police say the trio became engaged in a confrontation with a group of people outside the shopping centre near the west side parking lot around 4:30 p.m.

Investigators say one of the adults was bumped in an incident that deteriorated into an exchange of words before becoming a physical exchange with one of the two suspects who “repeatedly” punched and kicked the other.

Detectives say a knife was “displayed to the victim” during the altercation.

Mountain Division detectives say the three arrested are 15, 16 and 17-years-old and each faces a charge of assault with a weapon.
