A 13-year-old girl was arrested earlier this week after police say she stabbed another teenager.
According to Natchez Police Chief Joe Daughtry, authorities believe two girls were fighting and the 13-year-old got in between them and stabbed one of them. The stabbing victim is 17 years old.
No names have been released, as both the alleged attacker and the victim are juveniles.
The victim was taken to a local hospital and is expected to recover.
The 13-year-old is facing charges of aggravated assault.
