Teens accused of attacks on Indians in Rapid City
Four white teens face felony charges for a series of attacks on homeless Indians in Rapid City, South Dakota.

The teens allegedly shot a BB gun and threw a bottle of liquid, believed to have been urine, in three separate attacks on Tuesday night. One of the victims uses a wheelchair.

"It's as sickening as it is shocking," Chief of Police Steve Allender told The Rapid City Journal. "It was just a ridiculous situation."

The juveniles range in age from 12 to 17. They face felony charges of malicious intimidation or harassment and misdemeanor crimes of simple assault and intentionally causing contact with bodily fluids or waste.
