Woman, teen girl injured in stabbing outside Edison High School in Hunting Park

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Philadelphia police are investigating a stabbing on the grounds of Edison High School in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia on Thursday.

It happened at 151 W. Luzerne Street.

Parents were allowed to pick up their children from school earlier, but some had no idea even a stabbing had taken place.

“Nobody called me, so I didn’t know about it … It’s crazy, they should have called me,” said parent Francisco Maldonado.

The parents knew few details about why Edison High was suspended.

District officials say an altercation broke out on the second floor of the school just before noon. After that, two women showed up at the school. Things then escalated outside the school’s front doors.

“As they left, a grandmother and another student left. One bumped into the other, words were exchanged, maces were sprayed, the grandmother was hit by the mace and she pulled out a knife,” said Monique Braxton, spokeswoman for the Philadelphia District School.

According to the Philadelphia police, a 28-year-old woman was stabbed in the shoulder and a 17-year-old woman had her finger cut. Both are stable. The 58-year-old woman accused of stabbing her is now in custody.

“Violence is never an acceptable means of resolving conflict, and the school district urges family members to resolve conflicts peacefully,” Braxton said.

The parents were dismayed when they found out what had happened.

“He called me and let me know that someone had been stabbed,” explained parent Corialys Santigo.

She says her son called her, not the school. The district says they have since sent a letter to the parents.

What happened before the stabbing is unclear. The incident is being investigated and police have video of the altercation.
