PITTSBURGH, PA - Sheriff William P. Mullen announces the apprehension of the thirteen- year-old female involved in the assault on a store clerk at Monroeville Mall earlier this week. In the Juvenile Court Allegation form filed by Monroeville Police, this juvenile is charged with two counts of Robbery, Simple Assault and Retail Theft. The victim in this case was a seventeen-year-old employee of a Hollister store inside the mall. An eyewitness recorded the assault on a cell phone. This juvenile was also wanted by Juvenile Court for a probation violation.
This evening, sheriff’s deputies while working with Monroeville Police, developed information that this juvenile was seen recently in both the Hill District and Hazelwood areas of the City of Pittsburgh. At approximately 9 p.m. this evening, deputies and police were finally able to apprehend the suspect in an apartment located in the 2500 block of Bedford Avenue in the Hill District. The juvenile was attempting to hide in the kitchen of this apartment and was apprehended without incident. She was transported to Shuman Center where she will await her court appearances.
While searching a residence in Hazelwood for this juvenile, deputies encountered Jared Kyles, 31 years old, from the East Liberty area of Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania State Police wanted Kyles on an escape charge for leaving the Renewal Center.

He will additionally be charged with Resisting Arrest and Possession of Marijuana. He was lodged at the Allegheny County Jail.
