Stabbing suspect turns herself in

Published 10:47pm Wednesday, July 31, 2013

The 14-year-old girl suspected of stabbing two other teenage girls Tuesday night turned herself in at police headquarters after the incident, the city said in a press release.

The suspect, whom the city will not name because she is a juvenile, has been charged with two counts of malicious wounding. She is being held at the Tidewater Detention Home located in Chesapeake.

The incident occurred in the 300 block of Hill Street, city spokeswoman Diana Klink said in a news release on Wednesday. Earlier reports said the incident happened in the 200 block of Holladay Street.

Following the assault, the victims, who are sisters, went to a relative’s house in the 200 block of Holladay Street, where the relative contacted police. The sisters, ages 15 and 17, reside in the 300 block of Holladay Street.

The 17-year-old victim has been treated and released, Klink added. The 15-year-old remains in fair condition at the hospital.

Detective C. Gonzalez is the lead investigator.

    In fsirness to the girl with the knife, your readers should at least see the written in comment on the other SNH newspaper article on this point. There certainly seems to be at least another side to this incident, and the writer has suggested frequent bullying was involved.

    As perfect as I am, maybe I should have at least thought this through before blaming just the girl with the knife.

    Hopefully the juvenile court will handle this with a strong insistence that the problem be corrected by anyone contributing to this unacceptable neighborhood problem.

    KNRMCO is dead on right about what parents would have done years ago. My neighbor was tried, convicted and punished (I believe a belt was involved) by his father for having a pad of matches, and I’m positive this handled the situation without the need for courts, judges, etc. and with not much likelihood that my neighbor would forget and even dream of carrying a knife.

    Well I am glad to hear she turned herself in; but 14 yrs old?? I would never have considered carrying a knife at that age; I was too afraid of what my PARENTS would do/say! My how times have changed & not always for the better!
