    A 16-year-old girl is facing multiple charges after police say she brazenly slashed the face of one of her Pennsauken High School classmates last week.

    The girl is charged with Aggravated Assault, Unlawful Possession of a Weapon, Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose and Possession of a Weapon on School Grounds for the incident that occured following an early dismissal at the school last Thursday, according to Jason Laughlin of the Camden County Prosector's Office. 

    Pennsauken Police say the suspect used a razor or razor-knife to slice another 16-year-old student's face.

    The alleged attacker was taken off the bus and directly into police custody. Following questioning, she was transferred to the Camden County Youth Detention Center, according to the Prosecutor's Office.

    The victim was rushed to Cooper University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. She was treated and has been released, according to Laughlin.

    "We hardly ever have any type of incidents like this at the high school," said Pennsauken Police Lt. Michael Probasco. "It's usually a pretty good campus here."
