Three charged in Penn Yan after multiple physical altercations

Police say three teens were arrested following an investigation into multiple altercations, which occurred in the village of Penn Yan on December 14th.

After conducting interviews with witnesses charges were filed against Alexandra G. Hudson, 19, Mariah L. Brown, 18 – both of Penn Yan – with misdemeanor assault and violation harassment.

The charges stem from an incident where they physically fought on Keuka Street with a third female, in retaliation for an incident that previously happened on Lake Street.

In the initial incident, it is alleged that Samantha Lerch, 19, of Penn Yan – spit on Brown and an infant that Brown was holding. Hudson and Brown later confronted Lerch on Keuka Street and a fight ensued.

Lerch was charged with two counts of violation harassment.

All three were released on appearance tickets.
