A schoolgirl, who was seen on video stabbing another student during a fight at the Muschett High School in Trelawny, has been charged by the police.
The teen is charged with wounding with intent.
“She was given bail in the custody of her parents and is to appear in the family court on February 17,” Superintendent Russell said.
Following the incident, which occurred on Monday, the two girls have been suspended from school for 10 days. The injured girl was stabbed in the face and arm during the fight.
