A 13-year-old girl staying at the Graham Windham residential center in Hastings-on-Hudson stabbed a fellow teenager there and injured a staff member.

The event took place Friday, Jan. 12, when the teen attacked a staff member with a weapon, said Hastings-on-Hudson Police Lt. David Dosin.

During the altercation, another student tried to intervene and suffered a "superficial" stab wound to the chest and a laceration to the hand, Dosin said.

The staff member received an injured lip, he added.

The 13-year-old, whose name wasn't released because of her age, was charged with two counts of felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon, Dosin said.

Her case will be handled in family court due to her age.

Graham Windham is a New York City-based nonprofit that runs residential treatment centers and schools throughout the area for children, youth, and families affected by abuse, neglect, and delinquency, with needed services.
