8 arrested in stabbing involving juveniles
Philadelphia police have arrested eight people — including four juveniles — in connection with a disturbance at an apartment off of St. Francis Drive early last week that left two female victims seriously injured with stab wounds, said Philadelphia Police Chief Eric Lyons.
“More charges are expected,” he said.
Lyons said most of those involved and four of those arrested were juveniles so information is limited in reference to the identities of both those arrested and the victims.
Lyons said he can confirm the following have been arrested and charged as adults in connection with the incident:
• Zamiya Bourrage, 16, has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault. She will be charged as an adult.
• Sha’kayla Campbell, 18, and Takevian McDonald, 23, were both arrested and charged with accessory after the fact.
• Ja’kayla Campbell, 18, was arrested and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
On Tuesday, Nov. 14, at about 4:30 p.m. PPD responded to a disturbance call at Hillcrest Apartments on St. Francis Drive, according to Lyons.
Upon arrival, officers observed a large group of people outside the complex engaged in a disturbance.
Lyons said officers then found two females had been stabbed during the altercation.
One person was stabbed four times in the back and the other was stabbed in the arm and eye, he said.
“Both were transported to the local hospital and have since been released,” Lyons said.
Lyons could not say if the two injured juvenile females were among the four juveniles charged.
