CAMBRIDGE, Md.- A 16-year-old student is facing assault and related charges following accusations that she stabbed a fellow student with a small knife during a Monday morning fight at Cambridge-South Dorchester High School.

Dorchester County Sheriff James Phillips reports that at around 8:15 a.m., two female students - ages 16 and 17 respectively - got into a fight. Investigators said that during the fight, the 16-year-old student stabbed the 17-year-old with a pen.

The student was taken to the hospital by a family member, the sheriff said. There is no word yet on the extent of her injuries.

Phillips said the 16-year-old student responsible for the stabbing has been charged as an adult with first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, second-degree assault and disturbing school operations. She received minor scrapes and abrasions during the incident, according to the sheriff. 

Phillips said this was the only incident reported at Cambridge-South Dorchester on Monday morning. 

Editor's note: Sheriff Phillips initially reported that a pen was used in the stabbing. However, he told WBOC later Monday, "We have confirmed through further inviestrigation, it was in fact a small knife, not a pen that was used in the stabbing at Cambridge-South Dorchester High. An additional person is being charged with hiding the knife. We have the weapon."
