BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) — Beaumont police say three girls attacked a postal worker after she refused to give them money last week.

Police spokesman Rob Flores says two girls — ages 12 and 14 — were arrested Thursday and a 16-year-old is still being sought.

Flores tells The Beaumont Enterprise that on July 5, the postal worker was hit on the back of the head, leaving a large welt.

Flores says each of the three girls faces a third-degree felony charge of attempted robbery.

Neighbors and witnesses identified the girls, whose names aren't being released because they are minors.
