The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has already made one arrest – and continues investigating an aggravated battery in the Bluewater Bay area last night which involved multiple teenage girls.
The 16-year old victim, who is five feet tall and 110 pounds, was held to the ground, punched in the head, and hit with a baseball bat outside her home.
She suffered facial abrasions, a sprained ankle, and other non-life-threatening injuries. She told OCSO deputies the attack by two other female teens, which was captured on video by bystanders and uploaded to Snapchat, was connected to a dispute over a boy.
The bat was later found discarded on the southside of Bay Drive near the intersection with Prestwick Drive.
18-year old Sloan Carlson Raney of Niceville was charged Tuesday night with aggravated battery. Raney says she only struck the victim with her fists.
The investigation is ongoing.
