A Charlotte teen was treated for several injuries after an alleged assault by a mob outside a Indian Land neighborhood clubhouse Feb. 10.

Deputies spoke with the 17-year-old victim over the phone at about 1 a.m. as she was being treated for her injuries at Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville, according to a Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

The teen told deputies she needed to file a report because she had been assaulted earlier that night outside the Black Horse Run Clubhouse, 9684 Black Horse Run Road.

The attack happened soon after she left a party at the clubhouse and was waiting for a ride, sometime between 12:30 and 12:45 a.m., the report said.

As the victim waited outside, two teen girls she knew allegedly assaulted her from behind, the report said.

The victim reported that her attackers punched and scratched her, as well as bit her finger. She said the attack was unprovoked.

The victim told deputies she was being treated for several injuries, including multiple scratches on her chin, chest, forehead and nose, as well as an injury to the inside of her lip, swollen eyes and the bite on her finger.

Both attackers live in Charlotte, the victim told investigators.

Deputies agreed to meet the victim in Indian Land the next day to learn more for the investigation. They also planned to speak with a witness to the attack and review photographs the victim took of her own injuries soon after the incident, the report said.

The status of the investigation and the victim’s condition were not known Friday. It is also unknown if any arrests have been made in the case.
