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.
