A half dozen youth are facing charges after multiple complaints about a large group of youths who were bullying and chasing a 13-year-old girl throughout Nanton.

Claresholm and Nanton RCMP investigated and it was found there was a long history of inappropriate behaviour with these youth and the victim. 

Nanton detachment commander, acting Corporal Tom Nairn says it's unfortunate that multiple past warnings were ignored and the issue elevated to this level.

RCMP arrested and charged a total of six people Friday, five who were 14 years old and one who was 15.

All six are facing charges of intimidation, while three have been charged with mischief and one with uttering threats.

They were released from custody to appear in provincial court in Fort Macleod on July 15, 2022.
