2 stabbed during after-school fight in Mobile

MOBILE (AP) — Two girls stabbed each other with the same knife during an after-school fight involving five female middle school students, Mobile police said.

A 12-year-old was stabbed in the leg and a 14-year-old in the shoulder Wednesday in the fight at Mae Eanes Middle School. The girls, charged with second-degree assault, were taken to a hospital, but the injuries were not life-threatening, officials said.

Police said three other girls involved in the fight were taken to Strickland Youth Center on Wednesday and charged with disorderly conduct.

Five female students between the ages of 12 and 14 were involved in the fight when officers arrived on the scene around 3 p.m. According to the school's Web site, the school lets out at 2:30 p.m. Police said one of the girls drew a knife and stabbed another girl, who then gained control of the knife and stabbed her attacker.

Police spokesman John Young said Brian Olds, 19, took the knife and tried to run from police. But Young said officers caught Olds and found marijuana on him. He was charged with failure to obey police, harassment, possession of marijuana and criminal trespass. He wasn't listed on the Mobile Metro Jail log Thursday morning.
