THREE girls aged between 11 and 15 will appear in a youth court tomorrow charged with robbing a 15-year-old.

The victim claimed she was punched and robbed in Bromley High Street on Saturday night.

She told police she had been hit in the face and robbed of her handbag, containing cash, cosmetics and a mobile phone as she stood outside Woolworths at 10.40pm.

A police search of the area resulted in a double-decker bus being stopped on Bromley Road, Downham, where a group of 10 men and women were asked to get off.

The victim's handbag and mobile phone were found nearby.

A 15-year-old girl from Greenwich, a 14-year-old from Lewisham and an 11-year-old from Lewisham were arrested on suspicion of robbery.

They were bailed and then charged with the offence today.
