A Newton County teen was hospitalized after reportedly being beaten and robbed by nine females and one male after a party.

Deputies were called to Newton Medical Center Jan. 29 where they met with the girl and her family. The 17-year-old girl was scratched and had a large amount of bruising around her eyes. She told deputies that she had been robbed by the females and male while attempting to leave a party at Stone Ridge Way (off Flat Shoals Road).

She said the group stole her purse, cell phone and her camera.
