WESTMINSTER, Colo. - Westminster Police are investigating a felony menacing incident that happened early Friday morning.

Officers said they were called out to 92nd Avenue and Lowell Boulevard at 1 a.m. on a disturbance.

When officers arrived, they said they found a vehicle with windows broken out. Officers also said they found a girl who had possibly been hit by a baseball bat. She had apparently been targeted by the suspects.
