ROCA, Neb. — The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says it is investigating a weekend incident involving teens at Roca Berry Farm.
Sheriff Terry Wagner said deputies were called shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday to Roca Berry Farms in reference to an assault. Upon arrival, Wagner said two young girls – age 13 and 14 – told deputies they were assaulted by two to four unknown juveniles.
Wagner said both girls were transported to a local hospital where they were treated and later released to their parents.
“Our deepest regrets and heartfelt sympathies go out to those affected by this group,” Roca Berry Farm said in a Facebook post. “While we are pleased that the incident resulted in no serious injuries, we find these actions to be reprehensible and intolerable.”
Wagner said there was a Snapchat video encouraging people to go out to the pumpkin patch, cause damage and “wreck mayhem” which apparently led to the incident.
The sheriff said there are no suspects at this time, but the sheriff’s office is looking at cell phone video it received of the incident to identify them.
As a result of the incident, Roca Berry Farms says no one under the age of 15 will be allowed on the property without an adult. Additional lighting in the parking lots and events area will be in place along with increased security presence.
Anyone with information on the incident last weekend is encouraged to call the sheriff’s office at 402-441-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 402-475-3600.
