WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A Waukesha skating rink is being accused of discrimination against teenagers from Milwaukee. 

CBS 58 talked with one 16-year-old who says she was turned away from Waukesha Skateland because of her address. 

Animya Anderson said she visited the rink on Saturday, March 26, with her friends and their parents -- one of whom was from West Allis. 

Anderson tells us the owner said Milwaukee teens cause too much trouble. Her mother called and talked with the owner who, she said, told her the same thing.

"If I have Waukesha friends that say come out skating with me, and I can't go out skating because I know the owner will deny me, I feel like that's unfair," said Anderson. 

Anderson said she'd visited Waukesha Skateland before without issue, and never saw the rule in writing. 

Waukesha Skateland responded to CBS 58 in a text message saying they are wiating to hear back from their lawyer and to give them time.
