MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Three teens and their chaperone will speak with media Monday to announce a lawsuit after an altercation at The Shoppes at Bel Air.

Lawyers for the teens say the three and their 20-year-old chaperone were at the mall shopping for clothes when they were handcuffed by mall security on June 22, and one was reportedly bitten by the mall’s K-9.

16-year-olds Cameron Robinson and Zion Lett, 15-year-old Rodricus Johnson, and 20-year-old Nathanial Henderson will speak alongside their lawyers Monday morning at 11:00 a.m.

Lawyers for the teens say Robinson accused a security guard of racially profiling the group, and the guard slammed the teen, who was handcuffed, to the ground and ordered the K-9 to attack the teen. Robinson’s lawyers say the dog bit the teen several times.
