Girl brawl ends with 2 people stabbed, 18-year-old arrested

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - An 18-year-old is in custody after a group of girls started fighting in the middle of the street in Memphis.

Video of the fight was shared thousands of times on social media.

Memphis Police Department said a 17-year-old female and an 18-year-old female were taken to Methodist South Hospital with injuries.

Officers said Marequisha Mason, 18, was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault. According to police, Mason stabbed the two victims who had to go to the hospital.

The 17-year-old was stabbed at the base of her neck and the other 18-year-old was stabbed at the base of the neck and shoulder.

The 17-year-old told police she and the other victim got into a verbal argument with several other females outside the Westwood Community Center on Western Park.
