Police say the youth had been partying together when a fight broke out between two of the young women. During the fight, one woman allegedly broke a bottle and stabbed the other. After this happened, others joined the fight and at least four women were injured.

Two ambulances as well as the vehicles of some of the young women’s parents were used to take several of those involved to the hospital.

The 19-year-old accused of assault received treatment for her own injuries and was held in police custody overnight before being released with a court date set.
