A 17-year-old Edgewood girl was charged as an adult after she was accused of stabbing another girl for being in a relationship with her boyfriend.
Alicia Kelly Alexander, of the 2400 block of Beaver Crossing Road, was ordered Monday by Harford County District Court Judge Victor Butanis to be held on $100,000 bail.
According to charging documents, Alexander came to the victim's apartment, in the 2100 block of Cedar Drive, at about 2:40 p.m. Saturday.
Alexander hit the girl in the face and continued assaulting her. An unknown male entered the apartment and pulled them apart; a neighbor also helped.
The girl was taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center for treatment of stab wounds to her left thigh, left hip, right wrist, pinkie finger and scratches to her left arm and neck.
The victim said she did not see a weapon or what was used to cut her.
A television was also broken during the fight.
In an attempt to find Alexander, deputies went to the 2400 block of Willoughby Beach Road, where someone who answered the door told them she had stabbed someone and had gone upstairs to change her clothing.
Alexander was charged with first- and second-degree assault, first-degree burglary, reckless endangerment and vandalism.
Her attorney, Shawn Collins, told Judge Butanis at Monday's bail review that she lost her job at Friendly's in Edgewood. She attended Edgewood High School and graduated from the GED program, he said.
He said her family does "understand the seriousness of the allegations in this case," but he felt the $100,000 bail was too excessive and noted that she is pregnant.
Butanis disagreed, saying the case was a stabbing and involved a "juvenile victim." He left the bail as set.
