Averil Michelle Riddick, 37, is charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and obstructing justice, city spokeswoman Diana Klink said.

On Jan. 23, a female juvenile runaway allegedly was located at Riddick’s apartment in the 2500 block of East Washington St., Klink said. Riddick also allegedly denied the girl was at the premises.
