A 13-year-old Hesperia, Calif., girl who called her mother too strict with curfew was in custody Wednesday with two of her friends after the trio allegedly tried three times to kill the mom, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said.

The mother called authorities early Tuesday to report an attack by her daughter and two 14-year-old friends, who were not identified because of their age, deputies said, according to a report by NBCLosAngeles.com.

Besides complaining about curfew, the 13-year-old said her mother was too critical of her friends, sheriff’s spokeswoman Susan Rose said.


The three were arrested at a school and booked into the High Desert Juvenile Detention and Assessment Center on suspicion of attempted homicide, conspiracy and burglary, The Sun newspaper of San Bernardino reported.

Three separate attempts were made on the woman's life, but she did not seek medical attention, officials said.
