Cops: Girl, 12, Stabbed in MySpace Dust-Up

A 12-year-old girl in New Jersey was brutally attacked by her uncle's 18-year-old girlfriend Wednesday in a squabble over a MySpace page, the Newark Star-Ledger reported.

Police said Stephanie Torres was irate after finding the girl erasing a comment from the 18-year-old's MySpace page and stabbed the child three times with an inch-long folding knife hanging from her keychain, the Newark Star-Ledger reported.

The girl had wounds to her neck, arm and rib. She was listed in stable condition.

"I saw everything soaked with blood," the girl's grandmother, Luz Benitez, 61, told the Star-Ledger. "I don't understand how such an ugly thing could have happened."

Torres allegedly scooped up her dog and fled the scene in her car after the attack. She was stopped by police near the hospital, but it wasn't clear if she was planning to go inside, the paper reported.

Torres, who has been charged twice in the past with assault, is charged with aggravated assault and weapons possession charges. She was being held in municipal jail on $75,000 bail, the Star-Ledger reported.
