A 15-year-old Guelph female has been charged with assault and fail to comply with an undertaking following an incident with a ride share driver on July 27, Guelph Police Service said in a news release.

At 11:24 pm, the youth was near the intersection of Victoria Road and Woodlawn Road East, when she allegedly attempted to engage in a fight with another female youth who was sitting in a ride share motor vehicle, police said. When the other youth would not exit the vehicle, she allegedly began slapping and kicking it.
