Guelph police say a 15-year-old girl is facing assault charges resulting from an altercation on Wednesday night.

Authorities allege the teen was trying to get into a fight with another girl outside of a house just before 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, near the intersection of Victoria and Woodlawn roads.

They say the girl started slapping and kicking a ride-share vehicle that they were in when the second girl wouldn’t come out of the car.
