PALMETTO, Ga. -
Three teenaged girls are on the run after police say they assaulted their caregiver at a Palmetto group home.
The girls, 17-year-old Shanautica Hardy, 17-year-old Kiante Williams and a 16-year-old juvenile, are accused of beating and duct taping their 59-year-old caretaker along with two other girls on May 3.
Authorities say the five girls assaulted the woman, stole her car and tried to get away with the vehicle; however, they crashed a short time later and fled on foot. Two of the girls were arrested near the crash site.
Police think the remaining three may be near the Old National Highway area.
