Five months after a teenager was stabbed to her side with a ”Rambo” knife during a fight, her classmate was yesterday charged with wounding.
The 15-year-old appeared before Magistrate Wanda Fortune in the Linden Magistrate’s Court. The charge was read to her virtually.
The juvenile, who hails from Mackenzie, Linden, denied the charge which stated that on January 23, 2020, at Amelia’s Ward, Linden, she wounded a 15-year-old child.
She was released on $100,000 bail and instructed to make her next court appearance on June 15.
In a video that is widely circulated, the defendant can be heard saying, “We ain’t fighting for no boy, we fighting because this girl disrespects me and I ain’t do she nothing.”
A group of male and female students surrounded the duo and cheered as they attacked each other. Finally, the victim was seen holding her side with the knife protruding. The defendant then ran away.
The teenager was then rushed to the Linden Hospital Complex where she underwent emergency surgery as she suffered extensive injuries.
