A teenage girl from Toronto has been charged after a teen boy was stabbed in Oshawa.

Three boys were hanging out with two girls, including the suspect, at a home near Beatrice Street East and Wilson Road North on the morning of May 11. The boys left the home but later encountered the girls again around 11 a.m.

According to Durham Police, one of the girls brandished a knife during this second meeting and chased the boys down. Police allege the girl stabbed one of the boys multiple times.

He was seriously hurt but his wounds were not life-threatening. Paramedics took him to a Toronto trauma centre for treatment.

Following a weeks-long investigation, police arrested a 16-year-old Toronto girl on May 21. She’s been charged with aggravated assault and possession of a dangerous weapon. She remains in custody pending a bail hearing. Her identity is protected by the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
