DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a series of events in the West Delray Beach community of Seven Bridges Halloween night that sent at least two people to area hospitals in separate incidents at the community’s clubhouse.
In the first incident around 8 p.m., two teenage girls allegedly engaged in a fistfight that left at least one of the young teens — just 14 years old — critically injured. Sources connected to the investigation tell BocaNewsNow.com that both girls had been drinking. Neither girl lives in the Seven Bridges community but apparently “scootered” into the community through a gate. A “tall” teenage girl punched the “small” teenage girl for reasons that were unclear. The punching continued until the “small” girl fell to the ground — that’s when the “tall” teenage girl allegedly kicked her in the head. That led to a seizure and a loss of consciousness.
Midday Tuesday, BocaNewsNow.com learned from someone authorized to release medical information that a CAT Scan revealed no serious head injury to the young girl who says she had only had a “few sips” of alcohol when she was attacked. Questions are now being asked over security, where adults were in the Seven Bridges clubhouse structure, and why other teens videotaped the event instead of immediately rendering aid. There are also questions about the source of the alcohol involved. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office has opened an investigation. No charges have been filed as of 4 p.m. Tuesday.
In a second incident, a woman in her early 60s was found face down in the parking lot of the same Seven Bridges clubhouse around 8:30 p.m. Sources tell BocaNewsNow.com that the woman was inebriated and also on prescription pain medication. She was transported to an area hospital. Sources familiar with the incident say the woman was apparently conscious but disoriented.
There was no other community in South Palm Beach County Monday night that required multiple ambulances or Sheriff’s Deputies.
