A 15-year old Harrison Street girl, 14-year-old West Osborne Street girl, 13-year-old Tiffin Avenue girl, 12-year-old Center Street girl, 15-year-old West Parish Street girl and 15-year-old Franklin Street girl were each charged with one count of criminal trespassing.
The group entered the emergency room at about 8:30 p.m. and headed toward the hospital’s main entrance, according to a Sandusky police report. Firelands security staff went to intercept the group, with some splitting off and heading toward the labor and delivery floor.
Staff closed in on the girls on the second floor, but the group fled. They hid in a women’s bathroom until enough security guards were able to round them up and stand by as Sandusky police officers arrived, the report said.
One girl claimed they were there to visit her grandfather, John Pickens, but hospital staff found that no one by that name was a current patient. Security staff told Sandusky officers they’ve had a rash of juveniles roaming the facility and committing subsequent thefts before fleeing, the report said. The girls were arrested and taken to the Erie County Detention Home.
