    On January 30, 2015 just before 7:30 a.m., Victorian Washington and a juvenile were standing in front of the 400 building at King High School waiting for school to begin. Melinda Williams and Alaisha Scott, were also standing in the same area. At some point, the juvenile thought that Melinda and Alaisha were laughing at her and a verbal dispute ensued. It soon became physical between the juvenile and Melinda. At that point, Victorian and Alaisha began fighting as well. Victorian then pulled out a folding knife with a 2” blade and cut Alaisha near her left eye and stabbed her in the chest. Then, Victorian jumped into the fight between the juvenile and Melinda and cut Melinda near her right shoulder. Alaisha was transported to St. Joseph's Hospital Main with nonthreatening injuries and Melinda was transported by her mother for the nonthreatening injury. The knife was recovered at the scene. Victorian Washington was taken into custody and will be charged with Aggravated Battery (x2), Possession of a Weapon on School Campus and Carrying Concealed Weapon. The juvenile was also taken into custody and will be charged with Battery and Possession of Marijuana. Due to the fact that the juvenile was charged with two misdemeanors, we cannot release her name.
