Girl, 15, Suffers Stab Wound to the Head Inside West Philly House: Police

A 15-year-old girl suffered a stab wound to the head inside a home in West Philadelphia Wednesday morning, and police are trying to sort out the details of what happened.

Police responded to the home, on 46th Street near Wyalusing Avenue, in the Mill Creek neighborhood, at 10:46 a.m. for the stabbing. They found the teen there with a wound to her head.

Police said initially that the victim was being "uncooperative" with their investigation. The circumstances surrounding the stabbing were unclear.

Medics took the teen to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia for treatment. Police said she's in stable condition.

The teen is the third to fall victim to violence in the city in less than 24 hours, after a 14-year-old girl died overnight when she was accidentally shot while her friends played with a gun, and a 13-year-old boy wound up critically wounded by gunfire in what police say was a road rage incident late Tuesday night.
