A Clairton teenager is expected to go before Glassport Magisterial District Judge Armand A. Martin today for her alleged role in a stabbing in the city earlier this month.

Allegheny County police have charged 18-year-old Cassandra Taylor with two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of recklessly endangering another person.

Her preliminary hearing is set for 1 p.m.

Charges stem from an incident on April 15 at 8:21 p.m. along the 2700 block of Lincoln Avenue.

Police were dispatched to the area for a large fight in the street.

Upon their arrival, three separate victims were discovered suffering from stab wounds, the criminal complaint read.

One victim was transported to UPMC Mercy with a stab wound to the chest. Another victim was transported to UPMC Presbyterian with an approximately 7-inch stab wound to the head. The third victim was taken to Jefferson Regional Medical Center with a stab wound to the left arm.

Court documents indicate investigators interviewed two of the victims, both of which reportedly identified Taylor in a photo array as the person who stabbed them.
