NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) — Police arrested a 13-year-old girl for stabbing an older teen earlier this week.

Natchez Police Chief Joseph Daughtry said two girls were reportedly fighting Monday night and the 13-year-old got in between them and allegedly stabbed a 17-year-old girl.

The Natchez Democrat reports the stabbing victim was transported to an area hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening.

The 13-year-old girl faces charges of aggravated assault. It was unknown if she has an attorney who could speak on her behalf.

Their names were not released because of their age.
