Video Shows Woman Stabbing Teen, Cutting Another
(Memphis) A woman has been arrested after two teenagers were stabbed and cut while walking home from school Monday.
Valerie Potts was arrested Monday evening for aggravated assault after allegedly stabbing one teen in the back and cutting another above her right eye.
She is being held on an $80,000 bond.
One teen, 16-year-old Tanya Sims, was taken to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in non-critical condition.
The girl’s mother said no major organs were hit.
The second teenager was treated at the scene.
The stabbing reportedly happened in the 3900 block of Tessland, which is near Raleigh-Egypt High School, but not on school property.
According to the victim’s mother, Angela Sims, a fight broke out at the school and another student’s parent followed the teens, then pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed the two teens.
Sims said the teens were fighting over who liked who, and Potts got angry and intervened with violence.
