Two underage girls are facing 15 charges — including assault, uttering threats and intimidation — after police say they were found carrying an air gun at the St. Laurent Transitway station on Monday night.

Police received a report that someone might be carrying a firearm at the transit station at about 8:15 p.m.

When officers arrived at the scene they arrested the two girls without incident.

What appeared to be a firearm was recovered, tested by police, and found to be an air gun.

  • One count of possessing a weapon dangerous to public peace.

  • Five counts of assault with a weapon or imitation weapon.
  • One count of uttering threats of death or bodily harm.
